How does washing your hands prevent catching coronavirus?

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, there has been one message the government and NHS have touted loud and clear – wash your hands.

The NHS advises washing hands regularly with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds.

Washing your hands removes any droplets containing the virus you may have picked up when out and about

If you touch your face while those droplets are on your hands, this is one way the virus can enter your system.

This advice continues, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson reminding the nation to wash their hands at almost every daily coronavirus press conference.
