We are constantly told to COVER OUR COUGH or to SNEEZE INTO OUR SLEEVE, but does it really matter? Is sneezing or coughing into my sleeve really any better than using a tissue, for instance? Mythbusters decided to put it to the test. They inhaled some dye and then sneezed, using different barriers, the hand, a hankie, and a sleeve. The results – SLEEVE! Not only did this result in the least amount of exposure, but the odds of passing it on to another person through a handshake or by touching another surface was infinitely less. You can view their test cases below.
