Touching is the problem.

I recall an experiment a while ago when people with and without colds were put into a room separated by a wire screen.

Almost nobody in the uninfected group got a cold.

Then they did the same experiment without the wire screen and the colds spread to just about everyone.

So if you meet a person with a cold, just keep your distance and don't touch.
