•Did you know that our hands operate a highly effective public transport network for bacteria and viruses; that there can be more than 1,000 resident bacteria per cm2 on your hand and those infection-causing germs are too small to see with the naked eye?
•Did you know that under optimal conditions bacteria can grow extremely fast and that it could double every 20 minutes; and that bacteria can stay alive on hands for up to three hours?
Handwashing is a choice that everyone can make multiple times a day. Choose handwashing choose health!
