Hand hygiene remains the single most effective way to prevent healthcare-associated infections and has saved millions of lives in the last years worldwide. But many people forget to clean their hands and keep spreading bacteria. There are things you just don’t want to share, like the pin code for your credit card, your location when you’re away from home, your toothbrush or used medical gloves. You can easily keep your hands clean - avoid sharing diseases. ECDC supports WHO’s annual “Save Lives: Clean Your Hands” global campaign, 5 May.
