We often use our hands frequently to touch commonly surfaces such as lift buttons, door handles, handrails, phones and toilet seats. According to several studies, on average people touch their faces very often especially on the eyes, nose and mouth. If any of these surfaces are contaminated with pathogens, these viruses can easily get into the body through mucous membranes on the face before traveling to our throat and lungs.
Which is better, hand washing or using sanitizer/sanitiser?
