Remember, wash you hands people.

If you’ve not seen the recommendation, well now you have.

But why?

Washing your hands achieves two goals in this case. Apart from just being hygienic, properly washing your hands with soap (any soap, there’s no difference) lifts dirt, grease and microbes from your skin making them nice and clean.

In the case of this new virus, it is apparently enveloped in a lipid membrane layer which apparently is a type of fat. soap cuts through fat = soap is chemical warfare weapon :radioactive: against coronavirus! (i like to think that at least)

So wash your hands you disgusting animals. We all know who you are!

First off, guys, thanks for posting the useful information here! You champs! :clap:

Just wanted to say to all my fellow nerds, if anyone needs a chat during these chaotic times, even if it’s just to blow off some steam, DM me, anytime!

I’m working from home & I feel like I’ve got way more spare time than what I’d usually have due to the absence of commuting. It’s pretty damn quite nice, I’ve spent a lot of time catching up on the current state of the tech community that isn’t 100% work related!


I’ve unlocked this topic now that it’s unpinned. Feel free to chat. I will make the topic a wiki if anyone wants to add additional resources for their country.

Please keep the resources to official sources only for your country in the wiki post.
