Not enough clean water to wash
This number is more than 40 percent of the world’s population. This is a fairly large number during the corona virus. People do not have enough clean water and soap to wash their hands. According to UNICEF Indian representative Dr. Yasmine Ali Haq, as the epidemic is spreading, it is extremely important to remember that hand washing is no longer a personal choice but a necessity.
60 percent of households have soap
This process is being adopted to protect yourself from Corona virus infection. This is the cheapest process. Hand washing facilities are a matter of great concern in India. According to the report, only 60 per cent of households in India have soap washing facilities.
56 percent of urban households wash their hands with soap
This facility is negligible in rural areas. Three out of five worldwide have basic hand washing facilities. According to the National Sample Survey 2019 report, 25.3 percent of rural households and 56 percent of urban households wash their hands with soap before eating food.
At the same time, 2.7 percent people wash their hands with ash, mud or sand before eating. Significantly, on October 15, Global Hand Washing Day was celebrated worldwide. Its goal is to convince people how necessary it is to wash hands. This can prevent many diseases.
