Washing your hands

Viruses spread when you cough and sneeze and the tiny droplets land on surfaces other people might touch. This is why it is important that you wash your hands properly to prevent transmission of the virus from person to person.

People touch their face, nose, eyes, and mouth numerous times a day without even realizing it. Washing your hands regularly and thoroughly will remove bugs and help prevent the spread of germs.

Jessica Urquhart, from our Clinical Trials Unit, demonstrates how to wash your hands properly.
