The BEST Protection Against Coronavirus

When you’re faced with an invisible threat like COVID-19, it’s easy to feel helpless.

I get it.

Even those once-a-week trips to the grocery store can leave you paranoid about what you’re coming in contact with—and what you’re bringing home with you.

But you’re not helpless against this virus.

There’s one simple step you can take that will dramatically lower your chances of getting sick.

In fact, other than living under a rock until this whole thing blows over… it’s your best protection against this deadly virus.

The only problem? Lots of people are doing it wrong…

It’s the CDC’s number one recommendation for preventing coronavirus:

Wash your hands.

You’ve heard newscasters, doctors—and even the President—drive this simple action home.

But can hand washing really make that big of a difference?

You bet it can!

Hand-washing is one of your most powerful weapons against coronavirus.

Soap works in two key ways:

  1. It physically removes the virus from your hands.

Washing your hands removes dirt, bacteria, germs—and yes, even viruses.

Just think about it. Every time you wash and rinse your hands, you could literally be washing those coronavirus particles right down the drain.

  1. It destroys the virus particle.

All coronaviruses—including COVID-19—are encased in a layer of fat.

Soap (yes, just regular soap) breaks apart that fat layer, which destroys the virus particle and makes it impossible for the virus to infect you.

Hand washing’s one-two punch—destroying the virus particle and then removing it from your hands—is far superior to hand sanitizers.

It couldn’t be easier—yet some people aren’t doing it at all… and the ones who are, are often doing it wrong.

The biggest mistake people make is not washing long enough.

Most experts recommend washing for at least 20 seconds. Yet one study showed that only 5% of people wash their hands longer than 15 seconds.

If you timed yourself, you might be surprised by how quickly you go through the process.

The easiest way to make sure you’re not cutting the process short is to sing a song while you’re washing.

You could sing happy birthday twice. Or twinkle twinkle little star.

Sweet Caroline.

Whatever it takes to get you to that 20-second mark.

Also, make sure to wash ALL of your hands. It seems so simple, but you’d be surprised at how much people tend to miss.

A study using a black light showed that the areas of your hand most overlooked were the back of your hands, lower palm area, and around your fingernails.

If you have a paper towel available, dry your hands with it and then toss it in the trash. This final step adds one additional pass at any particles that could still be stuck to your hands.

If you’re out in public and don’t have access to soap and water, hand sanitizers are the next best option.

Like soap, they can destabilize the lipid membrane surrounding viruses like COVID-19, but they don’t remove the microorganisms from the skin.

They’re better than nothing… but they’re not better than soap.
