With the A flu, European and American pay,
have just discovered soap and water.
Is not it shameful?
All this media hype about hand washing?
What is even more shameful is UNICEF, which will be heading the first International Hand washing Day on October 15th.
The argument of UNICEF is:
The goal of the first World Hand washing Day, held on October 15, is to raise the awareness of as many people around the world as possible about the consequences of poor hand hygiene.
For UNICEF, which oversees the organization of this event, the message should be directed mainly to children, especially in schools.
By hand washing with soap, the infant morbidity rate related to diarrheal diseases can be reduced by half. «
Why did not UNICEF do it before?
While she knows that only diarrhea causes 2 million deaths a year in the world, cholera is the disease that kills more than 1 million people a year.
Why, there was no celebration of international days for hand washing?
Fortunately today, a flu almost banal, calls us and calls to remember that it takes soap and water, not to be sick.
Unfortunately, influenza A and other – pathologies – are not dirty hand diseases like cholera, but airborne diseases and all that it entails.And here it is again and again errors of UNICEF AND WHO
