Totally believe it. Healthcare workers are exposed to contagious sick people all day.

that is the point, it should be difficult to believe, health workers know very well how easily infectious diseases are transmitted, how opportunistic infections can mean the death of debilitated patients and get very strong and strict directions from the health authorities about exposing the patients going to work sick.

Its like Pilots boarding planes drunk, irresponsible actions putting people at risk against established rules.

I always say hospitals are one of the most dangerous places to visit. Worked in two of them in the UK. one NHS and another private one. The hygiene at the private one was better because patients paid big money for their stay.

Use the hand wash on the way in and more importantly, on the way out. Wear a face mask.
