Germy Ties

Doctors may be unwittingly spreading infections through their ties, warn US researchers. The New York Hospital Queens team found nearly half of the ties worn by medical workers harboured disease-causing bacteria.

Almost half (47.6%) of the ties worn by clinicians were found to harbour bacteria that can cause disease.

You Said

I always knew that a tie would one day be the death of me.

This seems a little extreme to me. Take away the doctor's neckties - then what? What about their shoes? Those are covered with germs. And the pinstriped suits?

I can see an area at the hospital security desk piled high with expensive suits, Italian loafers, dress socks and cufflinks taken from doctors who make their rounds barefoot in hospital gowns. In other words - get real.
