Level 1 Award in Infection Control
Did you know that 100,000 patients a year pick up infections, many of which are preventable!
One sneeze contains 6 million viruses. Millions of droplets shoot out of your nose at 40 miles an hour (if your sneeze was the wind, it would snap twigs off trees). The droplets dry in seconds creating tiny bullets, so if you are in the firing line some may go in your mouth, up your nose or onto your fingers.
