The Value of Global Handwashing Day
October 15th was Global Handwashing Day, and it’s such an important time of year to really focus on the practice and awareness of handwashing. In 1847, a Hungarian obstetrician, Ignaz P. Semmelweiss, showed that handwashing would greatly reduce infections in newborns. His colleagues thought that he was insane, but since that time his claims have been proven true again and again. Handwashing does greatly reduce the spread of disease, and while 95% of people claim to practice proper hand hygiene, studies show that only 67% practice any sort of hand hygiene, not to mention proper hygiene.
