  • You mean there is a doctor that actually washes his hands correctly? Been a nurse for 30 years and this is a first. (Besides surgeons). Most are too arrogant to follow the peasant nurse rules and wash hands…..and admin sits on theirs and allows it to happen. I bet a lot of the hospital spreading of the virus is by docs.

  • amazing the man some where in Iran had not been showered or wash hands for so many years I believe over 40 years
    it’s show the body could handle to defend it celles

  • Small businesses should come up with ways to continue their business. Here are some high-tech products companies can use. We have made a video to educate the public for a while.

  • For the sake of the prevention of germs and viruses, We have to continue washing our hands frequently even after the virus is over.

  • I loving of bbcs Visual content like this, it is so helpfull and benefical for help to awareness thanks to all proggramer and others i wish germ free days everyone

  • You shouldn’t wear nail varnish when doing this as otherwise you can’t see what you missed around your nails. The most likely place on the hands for germs to gather is around the nail bed as it is the hardest place to clean.

  • From the daughter of an RN, the granddaughter of a WW II Medic and the stepdaughter of a surgeon: One thing nobody is teaching is unbelievable to me. When you go to surgery you scrub under and rinse those nails!! NOBODY ON YOUTUBE OR TV BRINGS UP GETTING UNDER THE NAILS OR KEEPING THEM TRIMMED AS LOW AS IS COMFORTABLE. This is not the time for manicures and long nails. Try getting out in the dirt in your garden and you’ll see later just how much work it takes to get the dirt out of the creases and under your nails even with a great nail brush. Imagine the virus and bacterial particulate matter that is invisible to the naked eye.

  • also I love it when you say your full name. don’t take that away from me, it’s one of my last little pleasures that make my life happy.

  • Unfortunately Oz is more an entertainer than a doctor these days. He mixes good advice with dangerously bad advice that could cause great harm. There are plenty of other places to turn to for information, starting with the CDC.

  • I present the evidence in a scientific way. That wearing mask can help you prevent coronavirus. It seems not work well. None of my foreign friends want to believe me and science as well
