In the past 18 months, perhaps no advice to prevent the spread of COVID-19 has been more widely promoted and easier to implement than the act of handwashing. The powerful efficacy of this simple technique has been reported in medical annals dating back to the mid-1800s from healthcare pioneers including Joseph Lister, Ignaz Semmelweis, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and Florence Nightingale.
For 21st century patients with a rare disease, handwashing is a more vital tool than ever before for preventing a variety of viruses and cases of flu that complicate their path to good health. To help circulate the message, and not the germs, we share the importance of this year’s National Handwashing Awareness Week, December 1st to December 7th, for the rare disease community:
