The COVID-19 pandemic provides the major reminder that handwashing with soap and water is one of the simplest, most effective ways to stop the grow of germs and stay healthy.
Handwashing with soap and water can prevent 1 in 3 people from getting unhealthy with diarrhoea and 1 in 5 people from getting a respiratory illness. That is why handwashing is so important, especially at lead times such as after using the bathroom, when preparing food, before eating, and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.
“Hand Hygiene for All” is the theme of this year’s Global Handwashing Day, following a recent World Health Organization initiative calling for boost hand hygiene. Global Handwashing Day is an annual worldwide advocacy day established by the Global Handwashing Partnership to advocate for handwashing with soap as a simple, productive and frugal way to prevent diseases and save lives.
Tips for washing your hands
Various tips that motivate us to implement hand wash in daily life. Some of them are:-
(1) Build your knowledge of the coronavirus and the risks. (2) Tape to your entrance hall and bathroom wall or mirror pieces of paper that say, “Don’t forget to wash hands.” (3) Further manifest the habit and motivation by creating a routine and considering yourself a role model for others. (4) Face-mask wearers wash their hands more often than non-mask wearers — potentially due to one protective behaviour reminding the wearer about the need to perform other related habits.
