I remember reading something similar last year. Worrying
Slightly different but I had to take my old mum to docs today. On a previnous visit I noticed a lack of antibacterial,hand wash available there so I asked why. The receptionist proudly replied she has some behind the counter for herself,and her colleagues. I said, ok,,but what about us? Today the situation remains the same except for a mass of leaflets warning us about noro virus, etc and the need to wash our hands. I told the doc there should be a hand wash in the waiting area and he promised it would be done. Docs' surgeries are perfect breeding places for bugs so why the apathy?
Infection is everywhere......if we have an,open wound when handling composts, etc we need to be aware. I am aware of the need to be protected as much as possible by regular washing of hands but, surprisingly, most people are not.
