For instance, every time a toilet is flushed, bacteria are sneezed into a washroom. These bacteria can cover the entire washroom in less than a minute and survive in the air for up to 24 hours. This could also mean, increasing the risks of E-coli bacteria that causes Salmonella, resulting in food poisoning symptoms.  With 29% of washroom users who remembers to lower the lid before flushing, this increases the risks of introducing contamination among washroom users.
