But the toilet and our hands aren’t the only places that harbour these nasty germs that make us prone to infections. That phone you’re happily scrolling on while ignoring your mates at the dinner table? That’s a hotspot too, and so is your keyboard that you’re currently typing on, and probably that mouse you haven’t cleaned since you got it.
