    Why it’s time to detox your desk: Average worker comes into contact with more than 10 MILLION disease-causing bacteria lurking on their keyboard, phone and mouse

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:14 am

    Eeewwwww. Step away from the computer! The public toilet seat has fewer germs than where we work every day.

    Millions of us spend our days slaving over a keyboard. But lurking between the keys, hidden on the mouse and nestled in your phone lies more than 10 million bacteria – 400 times more than on the average toilet seat.

    Unhygienic working conditions are a ‘key contributor’ to the 131 million working days lost each year in the UK and millions more around the world, to illnesses including colds and flu.

    Bacteria and viruses can multiply on hard surfaces, remaining infectious for up to 24 hours, hygiene expert and visiting professor at the University of Salford, Dr Lisa Ackerley told MailOnline.

    She said the average desk is a prime breeding ground for infections, before urging people to disinfect their desks, telephones, keyboards and computer mice.

    She added that better cleaning and hygiene measures could result in ‘significantly fewer sick days’.
