nothing to sneeze at

Trying to be anodyne honestly, but I want to be virus free at the same time.
The cost of airborne infection, to We The People, is huge. Sensible use of
a proper handkerchief would save every dollar of it.
This infectious person always seems to be behind me on a tram, a train, a bus, or in any queue. If it was Sweden I could charge them with assault. A tiny balled-up paper tissue does not confine their germs from the air we share. Neither does that crooked knuckle they touch to their nose, after they sneeze, on the train, while they stare me down.
