MORE THAN 800 MILLION CHILDREN AREN’T ABLE TO ADEQUATELY WASH THEIR HANDS AT SCHOOL, WHO AND UNICEF REPORT SAYS

(CNN) – The World Health Organization and UNICEF warn more than 800-million children are not able to adequately wash their hands at school.

Most of them are in Northern Africa and Western Asia.

That means it may be even harder to protect children from the coronavirus.

The WHO and UNICEF have launched the global initiative hand hygiene for all, which aims to scale up hand hygiene in response to COVID-19.
