COVID-19 and Cholera as an awakening for hand hygiene access

One of the first recommendations the World Health Organization (WHO) made following the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019, a time when little was known about the novel coronavirus, was handwashing.

As a result, this advice remains one of the most important methods of preventing COVID-19, along with wearing masks. The novel Coronavirus alongside other common infectious diseases like typhoid, cholera, and diarrhoea; pathogens like rotavirus, E. coli, and Shigella can be washed away in just twenty seconds with water and soap, or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Globally, hand sanitizers and handwashing stations became a common as toilet paper during the pandemic. Nevertheless, handwashing is impossible in many places around the world because of a lack of safe water, sanitation, and hygienic resources. The reality is that 40% of the world’s population cannot wash their hands. That is why we decided to do a hand washing video so everyone can easily learn how to wash hands properly and prevent COVID-19 and cholera.
