According to ‘Mirror’ British newspaper. People who use the phone inside the toilet increase their chances to be infected by the emerging coronavirus
The source stated that the bacteria in the toilet may transfer them to the screen of your phone, which makes you vulnerable to infection, even if you wash your hands after going out, given that the bacteria moved to the phone, during your use of it.
You can wash your hands after the toilet, but if you touch the screen of your phone and then touch your face, this will lead to infection,” said Professor William Kevil of the University of Southampton.
To note that coronavirus can live for two to nine hours on surfaces such as metal, glass, and plastic.
Previous studies have indicated that a person’s phone contains up to 17,000 bacterial species.So taking precautions was necessary even before Corona virus appearances.
