To avoid coronavirus, it is essential to keep your hands clean. Indeed, hands are the first vector of transmission of the virus and it is therefore necessary to avoid any manual contact with others. Therefore, you should avoid greeting other people and keep your hands clean at all times. Along with containment, hand cleaning remains one of the key measures to avoid contamination by this virus.

Hygiene at home
