Hand washing is one of the most effective measures that anyone can take to avoid illness and transfer germs to others
Do you know that Many infections, diseases and adverse health conditions are transmitted by not washing hands with soap and clean running water?
Most people are aware of it but don't do it because it is a habit which most people don't have, It must be a lifestyle habit not a seasonal practice.
Do you know that most people in the world really don't practise what they preach and it is of great concern. It should be a habit you and me should cultivate, not because of an outbreak of a pandemic but because it is part of our lifestyle.
Hand-washing methods and ways
We have to wash our hands in the method CDC says
Wet your hands with clean warm or cold flowing water, turn off the tap and apply soap.
Lather your hands by rubbing them with the soap. Make sure the back of your hands is lathered between your fingertips and under your nails.
At least scrub your hands for 20 seconds. Want a time timer? Hmm, singing the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
Rinse your hands well under clean running water.
Dry your hands with a clean towel or air dry them.
And use hand gel after :) joking but if you are in a place you cannot wash your hands carry a hand- gel with you. Examples are the trains, shops and crowded places, but I suggest you stay away from crowded places or huge gathering for now COVID-19.
