Letters, calls and emails: Simple good manners can aid flu prevention

Dear Editor

There is a lack of publicity about common-sense measures that should be used to stop the spread of flu,should it arrive (GP, 16 March).

Staying at home when unwell is sensible. But not dropping tissues on the pavement or spitting, and not coughing over our neighbours on public transport are important.

It is really a matter of good manners and awareness of public health. Do they teach manners in school these days?
