YOU ASKED. WE RESPOND
Q: Is hand sanitizer as effective as soap and water in killing the coronavirus?
A: Yes, as long as you use the correct type of disinfectant and use it correctly. Hand sanitizers “need to be at least 60% alcoholic,” said Dr. William Schaffner, professor of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. And don’t just put a small spoonful in your hand and spread it quickly. “You have to use enough and put it on all surfaces,” said Schaffner. “Rub it on your hands, between your fingers and on the back of your hands.” But it is always better to wash your hands well, if you can. “Alcohol is quite effective at killing germs, but it doesn’t kill things,” said Dr. John Williams, a virologist at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

The coronavirus not only infects young people. It is also killing young, healthy people. But many parents find it difficult to get teens to take the virus seriously. If they don’t listen to you, they may listen to Dimitri Mitchell, 18, who was hospitalized with Covid-19.
“I just want to make sure everyone knows that no matter what their age is, it can seriously affect them. And it can seriously harm them, like they’re confusing me,” said the Iowa teenager. “Four days later, the really bad symptoms started showing up. I started to get really bad outbreaks, like sweating, and my eyes were really watery. I was getting hotter and hotter and more fatigued … I would start to experience the worst headaches I’ve ever had. They were absolutely horrible. “
Mitchell is recovering, but still had a cough almost a month later. “It is a real problem, and I want everyone to make sure that they are following the guidelines for social distancing and group boundaries. And just listen to all the rules and precautions and keep up to date with the news and make sure you are informed.” “
“When people thought they were socially estranged for two weeks, the idea was that everyone could take into account the reduced hours parents could have. But many companies are now just trying to survive.” – Dr. David Anderson, clinical psychologist
