Taiwan illustrates "dabbing" for coughing or sneezing as proper hygiene etiquette

Taiwan's Ministry of Health and Welfare (MOHW) uploaded an illustration showing a cartoon figure "dabbing" when he sneezes or coughing.

The MOHW pointed out that sneezing or coughing into one's hands without washing them makes the spread of many germs and viruses, more likely to touch railings, hand grips, smartphones, doorknobs, elevator buttons and others.

The MOHW suggests people sneeze into the crook of their arm or inner elbow which the pose used is by "dabbing."

Hygiene etiquette involves practices that prevent the spread of illness and disease. A critical time to practice good hygiene etiquette is when you are sick, especially when coughing or sneezing according to Center for Disease Control.

Cough etiquette is especially important for infection control measures in healthcare settings, such as emergency departments, doctor’s offices, and clinics.

Remember to wash your hands after coughing or sneezing. Wash with soap and water or keep hands clean through improved hand hygiene is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs or virus to others.
