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!
