Handsfree Handwash System, the handsfree handwashing station from the house of PNB Kitchenmate must be installed everywhere if we want to protect ourselves from Corona virus. Read on to know why?

Living under the fear of uncertainties and growing pressures, the human life today is facing a never-imagined phase in the history of its existence. The pandemic called COVID-19 has forced the never-stopping and always-on-a-run lifestyle world-wide on an uncertain halt. Everyone irrelevant of their caste, creed, religion, social-status, gender, age or country is looking equally clueless and helpless. The fact that there is no treatment or vaccine for this COVID-19 makes it all the more important that we take all the preventive measures like social distancing, wearing masks, and maintaining proper hygiene seriously. Following the guidelines is easy when we are at home but in places like schools, hospitals, parks, malls or workplaces you need to take some extra steps to check the spread of this virus. Handsfree handwashing is one of these necessary steps. In the past, it was neither needed and nor imagined, but today it can be our saviour. PNB Kitchenmat’s Handsfree Handwash System which comes with the option of holding touch free sanitizer/soap dispenser and basin has recently caught the attention of not only the common man but the Indian Government too. Rightly evaluating its importance in the current situation, the Ministry of Home Affairs has made it mandatory for all the organizations to install Handsfree Handwash System. We will discuss how this handsfree handwashing station can help us in fighting against Corona virus, but before that let’s get to know about some important Corona virus facts.


COVID-19 Facts:

  • The new Corona virus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose. To protect yourself, clean your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
  • COVID-19 virus is basically transmitted through by an infected person’s droplets released by him when he coughs, sneezes, or speaks. These virus carrying droplets are very heavy to stay in the air and they fall on the ground or surfaces very fast. You can breathe in that virus and get infected if you are in the proximity (1 meter) of the infected person. You can also get infected by touching the contaminated surfaces and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth with those virus carrying hands.
  • Though it is not clear that for how long the virus that causes COVID-19 can survive on the surfaces, but some medical studies suggest that Corona viruses may survive on surfaces from a few hours to up to several days.
  • There is no age bar for Corona virus as anyone irrespective of gender or age can get infected by COVID-19. However, older people, and those who are already living with some medical conditions like asthma, diabetes or heart disease are at higher risk of catching the virus and getting severely ill.
  • WHO advises people of all ages to take steps to protect themselves from the virus, for example by following good hand hygiene and good respiratory hygiene.
  • Fever, tiredness, dry cough and nasal congestion are the most common symptoms of COVID-19. Some patients may also report of having aches and pains, diarrhea, runny nose or sore throat.
  • There is no medicine, treatment or vaccine for COVID-19. This is a new disease and it can take quite some time or years for the medical world to come up with its vaccine.

  • Fever, cough, breathing difficulties and shortness of breath are the common symptoms of COVID-19. In very severe cases the infection can also cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, and even death. The symptoms usually appear 2-14 days of time period.
  • People can get infected by the COVID-19 causing virus by touching the contaminated objects or surfaces, and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth without washing their hands with soap or sanitizer.
  • The good thing is that women who are infected by COVID-19 can breastfeed their babies. But they must take some necessary precautions while doing so. First and foremost, they should wash their hands properly before and after holding the baby. They should also wear a good mask and clean and disinfect the objects and surfaces that they have touched everyday.

Safety measures for COVID-19

  • It is necessary to take some preventive and precautionary measures on a wide scale to reduce the spread of Corona virus. Most importantly the government must ensure safely managed water, proper sanitization, and excellent hygiene services as they can help a great deal in preventing and protecting human health not only during COVID-19 pandemic but also for other infectious disease outbreaks.
  • Building good water and sanitation systems and applying right waste management practices, especially in resource constraint areas will reduce the human-to-human transmission of the COVID-19 virus not only in homes, but in communities and public spaces also.
  • The WHO recommends frequent cleaning of hands either with soap and water or by using a good alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Instead of covering your mouth or nose with your palms or the back of your hand while sneezing you should cover them with a flexed elbow or disposable tissue. Maintain social distancing and avoid coming into close contact with anyone who has cough, cold or fever.



Use Handsfree Handwashing Stations:

Complete and thorough handwashing after regular short intervals is the key preventive measure that we must follow to protect ourselves and those around us from Corona virus. Wash your hands with soap and water or use a good alcohol based hand sanitizer to prevent the spread of Corona virus and COVID-19. Like cold and other viral infections, Coronavirus also spreads through droplets. Whenever an infected person coughs or sneezes, he leaves the droplets on the objects or surfaces. Those who stand close to that infected person or touch the contaminated surfaces can get infected easily. Hence it is necessary that everyone should wash their hands regularly but they should also sanitize the objects and surfaces routinely. We must follow the golden rule of good hygiene to avoid its spread.

But then comes a thought that no matter how much we wash our hands and how much care we take to keep everything clean and sanitized but what if we catch the virus through the soap bottle or the water tap at the handwashing station. Any infected person might have touched or may have sneezed or coughed near the basin. How to protect ourselves and others from this danger. The answer is using touch free hand sanitizer dispenser and handsfree handwashing stations.

A normal hygiene practice like washing your hands with soap can prove to be a difficult behavior to inculcate. Especially because most of us touch our faces approximately 23 times in an hour. And this has nothing to do with the education as this is a very normal human behavior. We tend to touch our face, the objects and the surfaces around us. But we should also understand that COVID-19 is not any normal health problem that we are facing.
