Wash Your Hands! It Could Save Your Life! Scientists Say You Must Wash Your Hands For At Least 30 Seconds

These skin-crawling pictures show just why it’s so important to wash your hands amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The series of pics show how a person’s hand glows light blue before being washed.

It then shows hardly any difference after a “rinse and shakes”.

It’s only when the individual starts using soap that a difference is seen – with the hand no longer glowing with germs.

The gel product is rubbed onto the hands like a lotion before being exposed to UV light where it can show a simulated spread of germs.

These are the 11 steps you should be following every time:

  1. Wet your hands with water
  2. Apply enough soap to cover your hands
  3. Rub your hands together
  4. Use one hand to rub the back of the other hand and clean in between the fingers. Repeat with the other hand
  5. Rub your hands together and clean in between your fingers
  6. Rub the back of your fingers against your palms
  7. Rub your thumb using your other hand. Do the same with the other thumb
