Since the beginning of the coronavirus epidemic, the CDC has said that hand-washing is “one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick.” On Global Handwashing Day, a new survey from the CDC showed that men and younger adults aged 18-24 wash their hands less frequently throughout the day, even after being in contact with public, high-touch surfaces. … People that did not know anyone who contracted or died from the virus were less likely to wash their hands.
