The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the risk of infectious diseases and the need for a practical, targeted approach to hygiene; one that can work in combination with social distancing and facial coverings to break the chain of infection. There is a misconception that commonly touched surfaces are the points of highest risk. However, it is the behavior of people touching those surfaces without practicing hand hygiene that is the real issue. To prevent frequent re-contamination, we need to combine cleaning & disinfecting those surfaces with effective hand hygiene at the high-risk moments when hands can become contaminated.
