Did you know that a simple act of washing hands can save thousands of people from being infected every year? This is the reason, why Global Hand Washing Day is celebrated every year on October 15th as a yearly reminder to wash hands with soap to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others.
WHY HAND HYGIENE SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED?
While washing hands with water and soap is the best-recommended way to ensure hands are properly washed and are rid of germs, it isn’t always a feasible option, you can’t find soap, water, and a sink to wash your hands everywhere you go. In situations like these, hand sanitizers and hand sanitization dispensers come to your rescue.
Through a given day, people use their hands for various activities whether in home, office, or public places like holding a doorknob, writing a report, touching surfaces and objects, shaking hands with others, all such acts expose their hands to numerous germs making it essential for people to clean their hands as frequently as possible and for this purpose, hand sanitizers are increasingly demanded. These are gels that contain alcohol which helps in killing the germs present on the skin. Alcohol works instantly, effectively and is easy to apply, and convenient. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have also reported that hand sanitizers are helpful when you can’t have access to soap and water, however, traditional hand washing is the best way to fight the widest array of germs and bacteria’s on your hands.
Hand hygiene should be everyone’s priority, and this pandemic has enforced and integrated this important aspect in people’s minds. It not only keeps one save but saves other lives as well. The germs spread when you touch your nose, eyes, or mouth with unwashed hands, prepare meals or eat food without washing hands, touch a contaminated object or surface or blow your nose, sneeze or cough into hands and then touch your face, or other people’s hand or objects. Hence, washing hands keeps one healthy, prevents the spread of respiratory and diarrheal infections. Ensuring hand hygiene at all times, in all age groups is a fundamental task which must never be ignored or taken for granted.
THE HAND HYGIENE CULTURE MUST OUTLAST COVID-19
Since the beginning of the year 2020, the practice of healthy hand hygiene has been increasing amidst the Coronavirus outbreak and as the time is passing by, the more the emphasis on hand hygiene is growing to keep reminding people to clean their hands to stop the spread. While the awareness is an all-time high, it is important to ensure people don’t become complacent about hand sanitization and handwashing once the COVID-19 epidemic is over and life goes back to normal since it’s easy to slip back into old habits.
The newfound focus on hand hygiene with the emergence of COVID-19 must continue to grow and go forward for all the upcoming eras because hand hygiene is essential for good health, breaking the chain of infectious viruses and preventing the spread of harmful germs and bacteria.
