Stop touching MEN

Face-touching and virus spread

Key points of this article: People touch their face more than 20 times an hour and frequently this contact is with the mouth, eyes, and nose (MEN). This behavior is a major source of infection, especially if hand hygiene is not performed – pathogens can enter through the mucosa of the mouth, eyes, or nose. However, face-touching is an automatic action that is hard to prevent. Wearing gloves and glasses may help prevent face-touching.
