Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security on the consequences of large scale quarantines in 2006

Remember the coughing into your elbow maneuver? Yep, that one was also called into question in 2013.

All the assessed cough etiquette maneuvers, performed as recommended, do not block droplets expelled as aerosol when coughing. ...

Soon after the SARS and AI outbreaks a new maneuver was added to the definition of respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette: cover your mouth and nose with your arm, sleeve, or elbow. We were unable to find who was the first person to publish and describe this maneuver in a peer-reviewed journal, and we did not find any scientific study that supports its implementation.
