It's never been as important as it is today to ensure your hands are clean. Hands play a crucial role in the transmission of germs and viruses. As we know it today, COVID-19, aka Coronavirus, also gets transmitted through the hands touching your face if your hands are not clean and have come in contact with the virus.
COVID-19 virus primarily spreads through droplet and contact transmission. Contact transmission means by touching infected people and/or contaminated objects or surfaces. Thus, your hands can spread the virus to other surfaces and/or to your mouth, nose or eyes, IF you touch them.
Believe it or not, hand hygiene has become a matter of life or death for many. It's critical to understand that this plays a big role in combating the spread of the virus, among many or most germs that cause illness.
