#HOW TO WASH HANDS EFFECTIVELY?

ARE YOU WASHING YOUR HANDS THE RIGHT WAY?


Hello everyone, I am starting my first post with a very simple yet important topic. So stay tuned 😊

 Do you know when is World/Global Handwashing Day celebrated? Well its on 15 Oct. Considering the Worlds pandemic situation, we all agree that how important the hand washing or to maintain hand hygiene is. 
According to World Health Organisation(WHO) Hand Hygiene may be defined as “ Any action of hygienic hand antisepsis in order to reduce transient microbial flora ( generally performed either by hand rubbing with n alcohol-based formulation or hand washing with plain or antimicrobial soap and water). So these are the three ways/tips for effective hand washing:

1. After taking hand wash liquid or solution in hands, LATHER & LATHER (always invest in good soaps and for hand washing, antiseptic compositions should be preferred). Do lather it properly and ensure that the hands are completely covered with it. (IMAGES OF STEPS OF HANDWASHING ATTACHED FOR REFERENCE)
                                


2. To ensure effective hand washing, the procedure should be done for min 20 SECS. If the hands are visibly soiled the hand washing procedure to be done for min 40 SECS.



3. After hand washing keep your hands raised ( above elbow level) till you finally you wipe your hands. This way hands are kept away from any contact from the body till you dry up your hands completely.

As we know prevention is better than cure. Proper hand washing is one of the preventive measure by which transmission of micro-organisms and viruses can be prevented to a large extent. All of us do it but doing it the right way is more important.
