Hey, great question! Well, you actually have 3 high frequency options that are top notch to use anytime: first, if you believe in God, say "God bless you!" If you don't believe in God or you are afraid of offending someone who doesn't believe in God, say "Bless you!" And last but not least, a word in German that the English language has appropriated, "gesundheit!" Which basically means that you are wishing the person "health". All are totally acceptable in any situation that someone sneezes.
Firstly ask him/her are you ok . Do you need anything. In short you simpy say bless you
We must say god bless you.
Bless you! - the right answer by all means!
You can usually say "bless you" :)
That's relative dear Bettay.
Usually when someone cough we do not say anything but when someone sneezes we say bless you
Hi! An interesting question, you usually say(God bless you )but nowadays you should say" put your mask on " just kidding !! just say "God bless" and in Arabic you say Salamat ,or saha. pleas keep posting question ,and remember "Happy learning".
"God Bless you!", "Bless You!" or "Gesundheit" in German (Which means: Be Haelthy).
