Someone I know (one of the managers of a local grocery store) told me that it's the friction of rubbing the hands together that helps to get the virus off your hands. She did start nursing school, and that's one of the few things that has stayed with her. She switched her major because part way through she realized nursing wasn't for her. Having soap is still better, but the friction does help.Well, sort of, I'm asking if there is any data out there about how effective just scrubbing under running water is.
My assumption is that her problem is an allergy to the soap here at work. They buy it in five gallon buckets on a pallet, and I'm sure its the least expensive stuff they can find so its probably barely OK for human use.
I too am concerned about what is coming this winter!
