Hand washing: one of the 5 key protective measures

80% of bacteria is spread via the hands, making them one of the main ways that viruses and other germs are transmitted .

Our hands come into contact with bacteriafungus and viruses through the things we touch every day, such as public transport handrails, handles, computer keyboards, etc. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible to wash our hands if there is no soap or water readily available.

But washing our hands regularly isone of the most important protective measures to help prevent infections and reduce the spread of germs that can cause infectious diseases such as flugastroenteritisand  COVID-19 amongst others.

Using a hand sanitiser gel or solution is an alternative to washing the hands when out and about.
