Trays for things contain more microbes, than toilet bowls in the airports!
Scientists have checked them - and were shocked!

of the Procedure of examination at the airports are designed to secure you, but they can quite award you with cold - and even something it is worse.

She adds that these results will help to introduce new technical improvements during the planning and the equipment of the airports.

Scientists emphasize: their conclusions don't mean that the found signs of viruses are capable to cause diseases. However other researches show that microbes can live on different surfaces till several days. with
