Hand Germs – A Coronavirus breading ground…..

Some facts and figures about what we come in contact with everyday, showing how important hand cleaning is on a regular basis throughout the day.

It’s no wonder the Covid19 virus has spread so fast…………..

Germs can apparently survive for up to three hours on your hands.

There are between 2 to 10 million bacteria on your fingertips and elbows.

The number of germs on your fingertips doubles after you use the toilet.

When you don’t wash your hands, you transfer germs to the food and drinks you eat.

One germ can multiply into more than 8 million germs in one day.

Nearly 80 percent of illness-causing germs are spread by your hands.

There are more germs on your phone, keyboard and cutting board than on a toilet seat.

A study shows that one in five people don’t wash their hands, and of those that do, only 30 percent use soap.

When you flush the toilet, germs can spray up to 6 feet up in the air
