How to properly wash hands to prevent new coronavirus pneumonia?

Let’s first see how the virus spreads?

1. The virus is mainly transmitted through droplets such as sneezing and coughing, and the infection is caused by direct or indirect contact with the mucous membranes such as the mouth, nose and eyes.

2. Contact with virus-contaminated items can also be infected through the above routes.

3. In certain places, such as densely crowded and closed or poorly ventilated rooms, it may also spread through aerosols, which requires caution.

Everyone, please pay attention to the second one. Contact with articles contaminated by viruses can also be infected through the above-mentioned channels.

When everyone touches public items contaminated with respiratory secretions, such as elevator handrails, elevator buttons and door handles, in public places, and then touches the oral cavity, nasal cavity, eyes, and other mucous membranes, they are easily infected with the virus.

② Rub the palms of your hands along the back of your fingers and exchange with your left and right hands;

③ The palms are facing each other, and the hands are rubbed against each other with fingers crossed;

④ Hold the thumb of the left hand in the right hand to rotate and rub, and exchange the left and right hands;

⑤ Bend your fingers so that the joint rotates and rubs in the palm of the other hand, swapping left and right hands;

⑥ Put the tips of five fingers together on the palm of the other hand to rotate and knead. Wash your wrists if necessary.
