New York Times Special Section does illustratives on hand-washing, housecleaning for COV2
The New York Times has a Special Section, “The Basics”, in the print edition about practical advice for dealing with COVID-19. It can’t find the exact document in the online edition.
Here are two important parts of it. An illustration and video on hand washing, and a brief article on home cleaning.
Back in 2016 the Times had compared CDC and WHO handwashing techniques, and WHO’s is a little more elaborate.
Mike Hansen’s video above emphasizes you don’t have to do a surgical scrub, which might create abrasions. Also, these methods work for SARS-Cov2 but not for norovirus or “clostridium difficile”.
Fingernail trimming is desirable (but then so it is to play piano). I hope that’s all.
