How are Germs Spread?

Proper hand washing is the first measure to prevent infections as well as stop the spread of germs and viruses. Germs can spread from other people or from surfaces that others touch.

Many often touch their face (eyes, nose, and mouth) without even noticing. Viruses can then enter our body through our eyes, nose or mouth and make us sick.
Consuming food and drinks prepared with unwashed hands also greatly increases the risk of exposure to germs.
Similarly, germs can spread through touching surfaces and objects.
Touching items used by many after coughing or sneezing pass the germs to others.
