Handwashing is the first line of defense against the spread of diseases and illnesses, such as the flu and coronavirus (Covid-19). Several bacteria and viruses, which are present in everyday things and the air, cause infections that may lead to death. You may pick up such harmful germs through contact with your hands, so it is very important to wash your hands regularly.
Handwashing is by far one of the most effective strategies to protect oneself against illness and prevent the transfer of germs to others. Washing hands with soap and water may protect you, your family and everyone around you whether you’re at home, at work, on the road or out in the community because it prevents the spread of disease-causing germs.
