Prepping For The Coronavirus: Hand Washing Is Vital

Do you LOVE America?


    When you are preparing for the possibility of a massive outbreak or even a pandemic, one of the first things you should evaluate is your handwashing regime and personal hygiene. While face masks could provide some protection against infection, you should also ensure you wash your hands correctly!

    According to research, a mere 5% of people wash their hands properly after using the restroom. Probably even fewer people wash their hands properly to prevent the contraction of a potentially deadly virus, such as the flu or the coronavirus. Because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, here is the suggested way to wash your hands:

    Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds minimum, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. In a pinch, people can use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Remember to never touch your face, especially the eyes, nose, or mouth unless you’ve washed your hands well.

    Proper handwashing protocol includes five steps, according to the CDC: wetting hands with clean running water; lathering soap on hands, including under nails, between fingers and the backs of hands; scrubbing at least 20 seconds, or roughly twice the length of the “Happy Birthday” song; rinsing hands, and drying them with an air dryer or clean towel.

    Boosting handwashing rates at airports around the world could slow a potential pandemic by 24% to 69%, and increasing handwashing at only 10 major airports could reduce pandemic risk by up to 37%. — MIT study

    In addition to taking the time to properly wash your hands, you should take other precautionary measures, such as avoiding contact with sick people; not touching your eyes, mouth, and nose with unwashed hands; staying home when you’re sick, and covering your sneeze or cough with a tissue that you then throw out immediately.  You can also wear an N100 face mask to help prevent the inhalation of infected droplets.

    “Our study concludes that population engagement with proper hand hygiene could be a simple and effective solution for preventing transmission of infections and reducing the risk of massive global pandemics,” the authors of the MIT study wrote.

    As much as preparing by boosting your immune system and improving your “pandemic supplies,” you should be concerned with handwashing.

      1. So blowing dirty bathroom air onto your hands is what they suggest? An air drier couldn’t be dirtier. And I don’t think 20 seconds is necessary. Not for flu or a cold or something. Those are very weak and rip apart easily. Running your hands together would kill a lot of it. And try standing at a sink in a public bathroom for 20 seconds and not look like a freak. Go ahead I’ll wait.

        • Donny, since when is there is a line of guys waiting to wash their hands in a public bathroom?

        • So who’s ready for Mardi Gras?
          Errrr …Is the WHO ready for Mardi Gras?

      2. * People in China do NOT use soap to wash hands.
        * Many hospitals do not have soap or proper PPE like N95/N100 masks, goggles.
        * China people spit EVERYWHERE. Even inside of buildings. I’ve seen it too many time to count, even in US.
        * China Virus is an Intentional ChiCom BioWeapon.
        This current release is only a test. Spread and Death rate being tested by the ChiComs. They are perfecting their Bioweapon.

        Or is the whole thing a FARCE to cover up imminient economic collapse not only in China, but on World Wide scale?
        What do you think? Real? Or False Flag cover for MASSIVE Economic Implosion?

        * Problem-Reaction-Solution.
        * All politicians LIE.
        * Most anything in MassMedia is a DAMN Lie.
        * Internet is now fear mongering idiots out for clicks and profit.

        Trust No One. But You. And even that is questionable at times. Because not everything is as it seems. Time has proven that. Remember y2k? How about the run on silver in the past? The oil shortage? Sugar shortage? Remember any of those? Or how about Gulf of Tonkin? Where are those weapons of mass destruction from Iraq?

        If it is a real pandemic, to be wiped out by virus named after a bad Mexican beer is quite embarassing?
        ChinaVirus is better descriptor. I knew there was a reason to avoid that Mexican piss water in a bottle ! ! Drink American and avoid the Corona. CoronaVirus Problem solved.

        Might as well joke. And seriously drink American Beer, after you wash your hands with hot water and soap.

      3. I think this site has featured sufficient articles about this corona virus. It is a type of contagious flu virus, but not particularly lethal except to older people who smoke. An average of 80 thousand people die every year from the flu or flu related sickness just in the US, but we don’t see major headlines about that. If the news is accurate, there are about 1500 deaths so far from this virus, with 99.99 % of them in China. China has 1.38 billion people, so 1500 deaths is 0.0000010869 %, or 1 out of 920,000 people. It’s too bad anyone has died from this flu, but perspective is necessary. I bet more people die from accidents, or food poisoning, or other illnesses every day in China..
        It’s good some of the articles are posted to keep us informed, but 10 of the last 11 articles on this site have been about the virus, with a lot of repeat information.
        There is one aspect that needs to be covered more accurately though; what is the exact origin and nature of the virus. Is it natural, a mutated virus that jumped from animal to human, or a weaponized virus. Did it occur naturally and spontaneously, was it accidentally released, or a planned release, and if so why. There have been a lot of speculative articles, but almost all of them conflict about this aspect. Like all kinds of other events, there is only one certain fact we know about this virus, and that is we will never be given all the facts.

        • Bill
          China didnt quarantine 11 million people and risk their entire economy over 1500 deaths.
          The is a repressive communist regime we are talking about here.

        • Fear porn:
          fear sells.
          fear sells “stuff”.
          People WANT to believe that special magic “stuff” will save them.

          Reality: It most likely will NOT save them.
          But vendors make money.
          Web site makes money.

          “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” Government, Politicians, Mass Media, Websites, web site vendors, ALL PROFIT from your FEAR.

          – – Fear is the Mind Killer. – –
          Fear destroys critical thinking.
          Fear destroys good decision making.
          Fear destroys fine motor skills in combat.

          So be Squared Away and Frosty cool.
          Block out the noise, chaos, smoke, flames, fear, and any bullets zinging by. Ignore it All.. Decide and Act. Frosty cool.

          Fear Allows others to direct and control you.
          Don’t allow it.

        • Confederate Bill, you KNOW governments will NEVER tell us the whole truth about the virus. And you KNOW, only a fool would smugly discount both the source and timing of this virus.

      4. It is disgusting, nauseating, sickenning, and gut wrenching that New York City is financing the takeover of cyber security and handing it over, lock stock, and barrel to Israel.  This was reported on Mintpressnews today. So now Israel will be in controll of the nuclear buttons in America?! It seems like it! New York City tax payers are also on the hook for $100 million to hand national security over to Israel! The only people that this government in America serves are Israelis and Saudi Arabians! Gutilty of treason, bribery, and high crimes! Innocent law abiding people are punished and spineless, sadistic, psychopaths that
        are such self-centered, spoiled brats that they believe that they are more important than America, the entire world, future generations of America, and future generations in the world are rewarded! Israel also stole land in the Negev and evicted 38,000 Bedouin shepherds from their land. We are talking about the people that conspired with our government, corporations, and the Saudi government to create a false flag to go to war against seven innocent nations to fight their battles for the spineless, land theft, weazles, just as in the Yom Kippur war, with the faked 9/11 attacks! No more! I’ve had it! Never Forget the 9/11 dancing Israelis!

        Unfortunately, we have more problems than the coronavirus on our hands!

        • Nothing in my blue state shows me that white, Northern Europeans would have been able to organize security along traditional lines.

          I also use the same reasoning on any niche where third and fourth worlders have gained a toehold. It something that you were unable to organize, along traditional lines.

          Or, show me your free market alternative.

          • National security, and the security – including financial security of Americans cannot be outsourced to individuals of a foreign nation by its very definition, particularly where the kosher nostra has an extreme presence, and since Israel is a state sponsor of terrorism, in fact the entire way of life of Israel is limited to being terrorists. They stole land from people using the tools of terrorism. There are plenty of people in this country that meet the qualifications to do this, whether you are willing to avknowledge it or not. Maybe this will be payback for the dancing Israelis. The deep state is known for doing things like this. Kind of like a roach motel.

            • Furthermore, the reason that there are so many Asian immigrants in America that work in the tech industry is because Silicon Valley wants cheaper labor. It is the same with engineers, dominated by Asian immigrants for cheaper labor, not because Americans are not qualified, but because businesses prefer to hire vulnerable people that they can control under threat. Industries in America have also exported large sectors of the economy to Asia out of sheer cheapness in a race to the bottom. It is therefore no surprise that Asia is currently dominating the global economy. This was all done under acts of treason by terrorist businesses and approved by the terrorist government of America.

        • Ugh why are you trolling a big lie. That is not what is going on in which you put in your comment. You must be a sanctuary demonrat operative.

      5. “According to research, a mere 5% of people wash their hands properly after using the restroom.”

        Then, an ordinary amount of soap, water, and time gives me an advantage over 95% of people.

        It’s amazing how many of them want to be the boss of me and my things — people who usually will not have washed their hands. Why are you allowed formal employment, Western clothes, and to fly on an airplane.

      6. Don’t forget your sins. They too must washed away through the blood of Christ. (Eph. 1:7)

      7. You can also use disposable gloves.

      8. Anonymous, and yet when anyone mentions ‘secession’ they are told ‘OH! That’s too radical’.

        • Montana guy,
          Individuals can seceed from the country and leave. Malcom X was an individual that called for black national separatism which he later renounced after his Islamic conversion. White supremists love the idea too. Cecession creates a hostile enemy on American borders. That is an undeniable fact.
