London: You may think that travelling in public transport like buses and trains during autumn and winter would give you flu, but it’s not true.Scientists from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine have found there is no difference in flu rates between those who take public transport and those who do not, the Telegraph reported.But they found that those with children are more likely to develop flu.In a study, the researchers asked 28,000 people throughout Europe to record whether or not they experienced flu-like symptoms last winter, and matched their answers back to information the volunteers had given about their lifestyles. “Last year we found no difference in the chance of reporting a flu-like illness in people who took public transport and people who did not,” the Telegraph quoted Dr Alma Adler, research fellow in the school’s department of infectious disease Epidemiology, as saying.
