Hello buddies! We all have been under the rage of a pandemic which has affected millions of lives lately. As its consequences we learned a lot of things & one of them is the utter acceptance of ‘Clean Hands save Lives’.
Keeping hands clean is a basic hygiene etiquette that has always been directed by our elders to us since our childhood. Yet we tend to make blunders so much so that you will be shocked to know that, according to the 76th report by National Sample Survey (NSS) in 2019,
- 65 out of 100 Indians don’t wash their hands before having meal
- 60% of them do but without using any soap or detergent
- 24% people don’t wash their hands after defecation
For a big population country like India, the above facts are saddening depicting the dismal records in sanitation and hygiene practices of the country.
With the rise of COVID-19 across the world, we all learned the importance of washing hands for at least 20 seconds with a soap base to avoid the intervention with the fatal virus. Washing hands with a soap or detergent doesn’t kill virus directly but damage its protection layer made of fats by dissolving it. Hence, making it bleak & almost impossible to attack. Clean hands not only guard you from corona virus but also save you from tons of diseases especially children. Little ones are more prone to diseases than adults. As per the data by UNICEF, 1 in 4 children under the age of 5 globally, die of either diarrhea or pneumonia which is more than deaths caused by AIDS, Malaria & Tuberculosis combined. Sam Stephens, the founder of ‘Clean The World Foundation’ says, 65% of childhood deaths can be reduced if proper hand sanitization prevails. Washing hands for 20 seconds with soap or hand wash can keep an eye over such unwanted viruses from entering your body. ‘Washing hands in a right way at right time’ is key to keep yourself guarded from foreign elements. If you are travelling or due to some reason you lack water or soap you can use a hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol content at minimum. Alcohol successfully kills viruses leaving your hands protected. However it’s not that great for your skin so use it only when you need it otherwise always prefer a lethal combination of water and soap and that will set things right for you in an instant. Deyga’s Hand sanitizer is all made of natural ingredients including alcohol. To deep clean your hands while keeping them nourished is the motive of our natural hand sanitizer.

Children must be paid extra attention by their guardians as these munchkins are often careless & don’t pay sincerity to these little things which are utterly important.
People living in rural areas are more vulnerable to diseases. In rural areas, 70% people wash their hands only with water before a meal while 42% people do the same in urban areas, proves, NSS.
The practice of using mud or ash instead of soap or detergent is prevalent in villages. They are less likely to use sanitizers as it’s completely a new concept for people living in pastoral regions to believe & build faith in which is absolutely natural. India is a country where 70% population lives in villages. It’s our duty to contribute towards the rising awareness about Hygiene & Sanitation. Let’s take an oath to spread these words of practicing hygiene to all the possible areas where it’s still required today & not forget that, ‘Clean hands save lives’.
