A New Trend in Greeting #Infographic

While the coronavirus continues to spread in America–people are now choosing, along with the rest of the world, for smile or nod rather than shaking hands.

The coronavirus outbreak began in China, and the disease spread to more than 121,000 people in 121 countries within two months. The virus is a respiratory disease that can easily spread from person to person through the droplets produced while coughing and sneezing according to health experts.

Health officials have urged people to wash their hands regularly, avoid touching their mouths, and wear a mask if they have flu-like symptoms, to prevent the virus from spreading. This has also been advised to restrict travel and public meetings among the global population.

A lot of Americans are also avoiding handshakes with their peers to reduce the possible spread. About 62 percent of respondents said they now wave in greeting in a survey by YouGov, while 55 percent chose nod.

Bumping elbows and tapping feet, too, is becoming a new greeting method.

As of this date, more than 4,000 deaths have been caused by the coronavirus or COVID–19 while over 66,000 people have been rescued. Analysis indicates that the virus is 20 times more lethal than measles, and has a huge effect on the global economy.
