Keeping the hands clean is one of the major defenses anybody could have against coronavirus. Perhaps the constant reminding of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) may have paid off, as new research showed that more people are remembering to keep their hands clean by washing. However, there are still some groups who need more reminders.
