Certain parts of LAX are now a “no handshake zone” … the latest precaution in the face of a daunting pandemic.
Check out this sign from the Delta Airlines terminal at one of the world’s busiest airports … handshaking is a big no-no until further notice. The sign, posted at the airport information desk, also advises folks to be considerate of others and wash their hands regularly.
Remember, Dr. Oz is on a crusade is on a to replace handshakes with fist bumps in the wake of the rapidly spreading coronavirus.
The reason, according to the TV doc — COVID-19 is 5 times more contagious than the seasonal flu, and handshakes transfer 10 times more bacteria than a fist bump.
Someone might want to alert Donald Trump about the dangers of handshakes … he’s on video shaking hands with foreign leaders on his recent trip to India, and today he decided to lie about it.
Be safe out there, folks … especially in the airport … and remember, just pound it.
