Good Hand Hygiene Helps You Fight COVID-19

Wash Your Hands Thoroughly

Why is Hand Washing Important?

Pathogens can be transmitted in several ways, and hand washing is an effective way to stop them from spreading. Take COVID-19 as an example, the main transmission routes are through respiratory droplets and close contact. When patients cough or sneeze, they send droplets containing the virus into the air. Other people can breathe in those droplets and then get infected.

How to Wash Your Hands Thoroughly?

Now it is your turn. In order to better protect yourself from being exposed, detailed hand washing is the way to go. Per C.D.C’s recommendation, you should wash your hands with soaps and clean water for at least 20 seconds.

  1. Wet your hands with clean running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
  2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds.
  4. Rinse your hands well under clean running water.
  5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
