Your sneeze can travel up to 8 metres


Washington D.C., Nov. 26 : Scientists have made a slow-mo video of sneezing which shows how far a sneeze can travel.

The video shows fluids being sprayed from a person’s nose and mouth after they sneeze and these fluids can spread diseases such as measles and SARS, reports.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have revealed that these germs can travel up to eight metres.

Recorded on an extremely high shutter-speed, the video shows how humans produce a gas cloud when they sneeze, with dangerous pathogens suspended inside.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advise people to cover their mouth and nose with a tissue when they cough or sneeze to help prevent the spread of germs.

Also, you should quickly dispose off the tissue and sanitise your hands. (ANI)
