The change in lifestyle also accentuates the risk of contamination on a daily basis: business trips, public transport, eating food from many different places, eating with our hands, etc.
Who are the most vulnerable?
Everybody is likely to contract any infection but some people are more likely than others to contract one; Babies, Elderly or disabled people, and Pregnant women are amongst the most sensitive groups.
