Lack of basic hygiene in Kiwis leads to longer illnesses – survey

Kiwis are apparently a dirty bunch.
As reported by APNZ, germ-ridden New Zealanders who fail to perform the basic hygiene practice of washing hands after coughing, sneezing or blowing noses are getting sick more often and staying that way for longer.
The poll shows more than half of the population are failing in basic cleanliness - with men worse than women.
Except it’s just a survey, by Dettol – the creators of hospital smell.
And should children or adults really be spending all day washing their hands based on these guidelines? Sorenne and I are allergic to Brisbane and spend all day sneezing and coughing and stuff.
I try to be a little more specific about the handwashing – like when, as Sorenne says, she has a big turd. Otherwise she’d be washing her hands all day.
