Hand Washing Techniques
This year, more than ever, it’s important to practice safe hand washing techniques. Due to the national pandemic of COVID-19, we must limit the spread of germs.
In honor of National Handwashing Awareness week, we bring you five ‘super clean facts’ about hand hygiene (National Today):
- Handwashing equals happiness
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, handwashing can prevent 1 in 3 diarrhea-related illnesses and 1 in 5 infections, including the flu.
- Beware the twin killers for kids
About 1.4 million children under age 5 die from diarrheal diseases and pneumonia — the two most deadly afflictions for children worldwide.
- The dirty secret of public restrooms
The CDC also reports that only 31 percent of men and 65 percent of women washed their hands after using a public restroom.
- Handwash your way to health
Using antibiotics creates antibiotic resistance. Hand washing prevents many sicknesses, so people need less antibiotics. Therefore, less antibiotic resistance.
- Sneezes are mini hurricanes
A typical human sneeze exits the body at about 200 miles per hour and emits around 40,000 droplets into the air.
