Washing our hands better and more often

05/05/2020

Did you know that the importance of handwashing as a way of avoiding illnesses and saving lives was identified 180 years ago by Hungarian doctor Ignaz Semmelweis?

To coincide with World Hand Hygiene Day, the eHealth Center has taken to Twitter to start a thread explaining interesting facts such as this and offering various other recommendations.

We’ve been under lockdown for quite some time now, but that’s no reason to let our guard down! It’s imperative that we keep up our prevention measures to help flatten the coronavirus. 

How can we explain this to kids? A story (in Catalan) called Ep, les mans ben netes! published by the Catalan Food Safety Agency (ACSA) may help! Let’s not forget, hand hygiene is a responsibility for all of us

We’re getting there!
