If you think your cell phone is clean, you should think again, as cell phones are ten times dirtier than toilet sets.
Recently a man from Uganda stole a mobile phone and contracted Ebola shortly after. The device had been stolen from a hospital where patients with Ebola have been treated.
Even if there is practically no risk of you catching Ebola, your mobile phone most probably carries a wide variety of bacteria. Microbiologists explain that cell phones collect germs all the time, and that they tend to be much dirtier even than toilet seats. This also applies to other objects that people tend to handle very often but forget to clean, such as the remote control.
However, experts explain that the problem isn’t the variety of germs stuck to phones but the sharing of these devices between people. So, in order to minimize the risk of catching a disease, clean your cell phone regularly and avoid giving it to other people.
