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.
