Germs and your phone

Cancer patients need to avoid germs and bacteria causing infections especially when their immune system is weak due to treatment. When touching phones bacteria passes from hands to devices. Studies show the average phone is crawling with more bacteria than a public restroom. The bacteria on our phones/touchscreens thrive then your phone’s battery keeps the bacteria warm and multiply when stored in dark places (pocket or purse). This bacteria can make us sick.

Regularly clean surfaces with disinfecting wipes, glass/tech wipes especially with devices that are shared including mobile phones, iPads, touch screens,  keyboards etc. When you wipe down your phone, make sure it’s not too damp or it may damage the device.
