A coughing situation?

can you get the flu from someone else not covering their mouth when coughing while the person,who has get a bad cough, has been surrounded by the same room as you?
ad this really immature entity who thought it was funny to keep coughing without covering his mouth which I find extremely rude even though I told him to cover his mouth.
Answers:    if his cough is cause by a virus/bacteria, yes he can spread it by not covering his mouth / washing his hands.
while it's unlikely it'll remain airborne for long and "fly" over to you, anyone in his close neighbourhood or anyone that touches something he coughed on may come into contact with the virus.
if it's a cough caused by allergies, asthma, etc then it is not contagious
