Healthy Behaviour Is a Key to good health

24 October 2020

Today, we will talk much about personal hygiene rules, as cleanliness is a key to good health. The spread of a huge number of infectious diseases transmitted through dirty hands, household items and droplets can be prevented by observing personal and public hygiene rules. Personal hygiene, regular hand washing and observance of cough and sneeze etiquette and social or safe distance are indispensable requirements in our modern life.

Hands must be thoroughly washed with soap and running water. Wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds and lather the backs of your hands, palms, between your fingers and under your nails. Then rinse your hands under running water and wipe them dry. If there is no water, disinfectant solutions should be used to sanitise the hands.
