Great, you can't even elbow bump anymore

The coronavirus is spreading throughout the world and we’ve got to change how we do just about everything. 

Some people have called for doing away with handshakes. But even the compromise of bumping elbows isn’t enough, according to the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO). 

“When greeting people, best to avoid elbow bumps because they put you within 1 meter of the other person,” tweeted Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “I like to put my hand on my heart when I greet people these days.”
