Why do you let them cough?

I can’t help but notice the amount of mums that don’t care/ do nothing about their kid is coughing without covering their mouth in public, it’s rank.

I put electrical tape over my kids mouths if sick when out.

 It's much quieter and also stops vomit.

What are they supposed to do? Make them hold their breath?

When they cover their mouth they just go and touch things with the hand they coughed on, so what's the difference really?

 In the schools, children are taught to cough into their elbow crease.
