Do you wash your hands after pressing the elector button? If your answer is ‘NO’,then you are probably inviting a number of infections! Studies show that elevator buttons in hospitals carry more germs than toilets. Elevators had 61% germs in comparison to 43% germs on the surfaces of toilets. If you are visiting a hospital, as a carrier of germs you may end up passing on the microorganisms to the patient. You are also likely to get infected. Though the bacteria are not fatal, still they may cause severe infections. Wash your hands with a good disinfectant soap to avoid the contamination. Your health is priceless, isn’t it?
