Cooing at new-born babies banned

This happens only in England: A West Yorkshire hospital has banned visitors from cooing at new-born babies over fears their human rights are being breached and to reduce infection.

What next? Disinfected 'burkhas' (veils) for babies?

  1. I am an Englishman myself, but I don't understand how cooing can be related to human rights. Anyone? I first thought this was a joke, till I followed that link to BBC.

    By the way, many strange things happen in England. I suggest you live here for a while to enjoy these "benefits".
