Afraid of Getting Infected? They Found a Way Against It!

When it comes to minimizing your risks of infection, there are many steps you can take to ensure your health isnt affected, such as wearing masks, avoiding crowded places and maintaining the highest level of hygiene by washing your hands, as mentioned in previous articles.

But youre also bound to come across certain areas and objects that may be subject to virus exposure and that you wont be able to avoid, like pressing a button in your elevator.

Luckily for us, creative geniuses have come up with innovative (and fun) ways to keep your hands clean!
