How to wash with soap
There is no reason to believe that cold weather can kill the new coronavirus or other
diseases. The normal human body temperature remains around 36.5°C to 37°C,
regardless of the external temperature or weather. The most effective way to protect
yourself against the new coronavirus is by frequently cleaning your hands with
alcohol-based hand rub or washing them with soap and water.
Why alcohol-based sanitisers?
Alcohol is effective at killing different types of microbes, including both viruses
and bacteria. Coronavirus is the type of virus with an outer wrapping, called an
envelope, which alcohol can kills.
Is Vodka ok to use as sanitizer?
Despite many DIY sites and programmes suggesting it, vodka doesn’t have enough
alcohol content to effectively kill microbes.
