This isn't the first time we've mentioned how dangerous infectious agents could travel via mobile phones. However, a new study looks at just how common it is for mobile phones in hospitals to carry infectious pathogens. And, it turns out that you probably should avoid using the mobile phone of anyone who works in a hospital. Consider this the counter-balance to stories about how helfpul mobile phones are in hospitals. Of course, there's already a solution to the problem: sterilizing phone chargers.
