Children explore the world by gesturing, feeling and interacting with their physical environment using all senses, particularly the sense of touch. This habit, coupled with an unawareness of hand-hygiene, is the cause of the spreading of many germs and viruses in our school system. Children’s immune systems are not fully evolved and might not fight off infections as efficiently as an adult’s, making them vulnerable when it comes to infectious diseases.
To fight off dangerous germs and viruses, schools must make sure their students adhere to a high standard of hand-hygiene. This can be achieved by ensuring every student performs a thorough hand wash periodically. Other than educating students on the importance of hand washing in combating the spread of diseases, schools can now offer a proactive solution.
