Soap & Water Still Better Option To Protect You From Virus Than Sanitisers & Wet Wipes

Since the 2019-nCoV outbreak, people are panic buying hand sanitisers and wet wipes in order to prevent them from acquiring the virus. But, does that really protect you from the coronavirus?

According to the Straits Times, Dr. Kalisvar Marimuthu, the senior infectious disease consultant at the National Center for Infectious Disease (NCID) Singapore has urged the public to just use soap and water as the best way of reducing the amount of all forms of germs on your hands.

But if soap and water were not unavailable, then hand sanitiser with at least 60 percent alcohol content is a good alternative. When using a hand sanitiser, it is effective to use it all over your hands and rub it in about 20 seconds before letting your hands air dry instead of wiping them dry.

Meanwhile, health experts still suggest to use soap and water as it eliminate all types of germs than sanitisers as an alternative.
