COVID-19 and You: Wash Your Hands

COVID-19 and You: Wash Your Hands

Hand washing has been around for centuries as part of religious ceremonies, but the medical community’s awareness of disease spread by hand and the importance of hand washing has only been in place for the last 130 years. So, I may ask, why are we just now pushing hand washing? As far back as I can remember hand washing has been a part of daily life, regular, with a bar of soap, hand washing. Not sure when society deemed hand washing taboo, but I for one am a strong advocate for clean hands = healthy body.
