1346 Views 0 Liked

Hand Hygiene is one of the most effective actions you can take to reduce the spread of pathogens and prevent infections, including the COVID-19 virus.

Evidence from both the SARS and COVID-19 epidemics, shows that hand hygiene is very important to protect health care workers from getting infected (Seto WH et al, “Lancet” 2003; Ran L et al, “Clin Infect Dis” 2020).

• Hand washing in the community is highly effective to prevent both diarrhoeal diseases and respiratory illness (Jefferson T, et al. “BMJ” 2008). Thus, it is one of the most important measures that can be used to prevent COVID 19 infection.
