People all around the world are concerned about the rapid spread of coronavirus. What you may not know, though, is that by just washing your hands with soap and water, you can eliminate all coronavirus from your body prior to infection.
There’s a science behind washing your hands to rid viruses like coronavirus from your skin. Essentially, the virus protects itself in a fatty layer that acts as oil does when in contact with water. This means that it floats and separates. Imagine oil and vinegar together.
The soap cuts through this layer, so when you introduce it into the equation, it permeates the virus and allows it to become infiltrated with water, essentially killing it. That’s why science recommends washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
If everyone washes their hands with soap and water multiple times a day, the spread of coronavirus should decrease. Be sure to stay healthy and safe to improve the lives of everyone in your community.
