Common Cold Fun Facts
A single handshake can transmit the common cold virus from one person to another.
Cold viruses can survive for several hours on hands, handkerchiefs and tissues, or hard surfaces.
Kleenex tissues used on the face should be thrown out after a single use as they can pass on the virus or reinfect you.
Since there is no cure for the common cold, the best approach is prevention.
Antibiotics work only against bacterial infections, not on viral infections such as the common cold.
