The single most important way to help us stay safe from COVID-19 is this one: Wash your hands regularly and correctly Respiratory viruses — like the novel coronavirus— can be spread via our hands. Hands act like sticky traps for viruses.If someone is sick, and you shake or hold hands, mucus and viral particles will stick to your hand. Additionally we can pick up droplets that contain the virus when we touch infected surfaces, and might enter our bodies if we touch our face through the nose, eyes or mouth.. Here is the best way to wash your hands properly according to UNICEF: 1. Wet hands with running water 2. Apply enough soap to cover wet hands 3. Scrub all surfaces of the hands – including back of hands, between fingers and under nails – for at least 20 seconds. 4. Rinse thoroughly with running water 5. Dry hands with a clean cloth or single-use towel| saviets In case you can’t hand wash in time, then Hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol are highly recommended. - Dr. Fred Mavisi, Chief Knowledge officer, Afya Plan, WHO.Int, UNICEF
