World Hand Hygiene Day – May 5th, 2020
Every year hand hygiene day is celebrated on May 5th to mobilize people all over the world to increase awareness about the importance of hand hygiene in health care facilities. This helps to protect the health care workers, patients and others who come to the hospital from various infections.
We all are aware of the present situation of COVID-19 pandemic. Coronavirus is an infectious and dangerous disease that doesn’t have a definite cure yet. The main way it’s transferring too fast from one person to others because of not maintaining proper hand hygiene. Maintaining hand hygiene and following some other precautions like social distancing, keeping your surroundings clean, self-isolation can save you and your family from coronavirus pandemic.
This year, the World Health Organisation(WHO) theme for “SAVE LIVES: Clean your hands” is associated with the Nurses and Midwives, and aims to recognize them as front-line heroes. “Nurses and midwives, clean care is in your hands!”. They deserve recognition and appreciation towards the critical roles they are in preventing the infection.
Premier Hospital Campaign Objectives For 2020
Our main aim towards the Global Hand, Hygiene Day campaign, is to highlight how effective is handwashing to reduce the spread of virus or bacteria and prevent infections which include the ongoing COVID-19 virus. Not only health care workers and other community people alike, but every individual can play a role in preventing this infection by practising regular & frequent handwashing.
