Here's another reminder of why social distancing is so important amid the coronavirus outbreak.
A clip from a 2006 episode of the sitcom "Scrubs" went viral this weekend, and it explains how a simple sneeze can potentially lead to illness.
The scene is from the opening of the episode "My Cabbage," and features actor Ken Jenkins (as Dr. Kelso) explaining that the No. 1 cause of death in a hospital is "infection."
Jump to a quick cut of a boy sneezing into his hands and his mother cleaning his nose with a tissue. Her hand turns green, showing the way the bacteria is spreading, and she shakes a doctor's hand. Now the doctor's hand is green, and he bumps into a nurse. Together, they help pick up some papers the doctor has dropped, and now the nurse's hand is green. She taps a patient on the shoulder ... and now the patient's arm is green.
"And just like that, you have a patient in trouble," said Kelso.
Several people began sharing the clip on Twitter. "Scrubs" stars Zach Braff and John C. McGinley also retweeted it.
