Nail biters are at a higher risk of contracting Covid-19 than those who don’t, according to an allergy and infectious diseases specialist.

The Cut reported that the specialist, Purvi Parikh from New York University’s Langone Medical Centre, issued a severe warning to nail biters saying that all kinds of “bacteria, viruses, dirt and debris” can collect under the nails.

All this can then be transferred into your mouth when biting nails, especially when you’re not washing or sanitising your hands properly.

“Every time you touch your face — especially your mouth, nose, and eyes — you’re transferring all of those germs. And you can get sick,” she said.

She added that germs going directly into your mouth is “the easiest way you can contract any infection,” not just Covid-19.

“There are so many infections going around this time of year, from bacterial to viral to the flu. But then on top of that, given that we now have this coronavirus, there’s even more reason not to bite your nails.”

If you have a bad habit of biting your nails, try to find ways to stop yourself from putting your fingers in your mouth, especially during this time and season. In the meantime, stay safe!
