It’s Recommended To Wash Hands For 20 Seconds, So People Have Suggested These 53 Songs To Sing Instead Of Counting
The coronavirus, or COVID-19, as it’s scientifically called, has been on everyone’s minds over the past several months. To date, there are over 95,000 confirmed cases worldwide with over 3,200 deaths across 79 countries. While the majority of these cases were identified in China, the virus surely isn’t stopping there.
Many global and national health institutions have issued precautionary measures and instructions on how people should protect themselves against the coronavirus outbreak. Among these methods was the washing of hands, which inevitably led to this one tweet going viral…
Freelance journalist Jen Monnier tweeted that people are supposed to wash their hands for 20 seconds, which turns out to be the exact time that it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice. However, when one song gets old and irritating to an uncomfortable degree, it’s time to switch songs.
