According to the reality TV star, 39, we should all be touching feet. “You should not do elbows,” she warned. “Because you cough into your elbow. So no more elbows. Or just do a little bow.”

She also shared disinfecting videos, saying she is using antibacterial wipes “every time someone even hands me something”, and a hand-washing technique poster.

With 162 million followers, if anyone can encourage people to practise good hygiene, maybe it is Kim K.
