Handwashing is the best tip for preventing the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). It’s a sense, and it works. Yet, it must be performed correctly and with soap and water. When soap and water aren’t available, the subsequent best choice is to use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Proper handwashing not only reduces the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), it can prevent the range of other viral illnesses like cold and flu. Handwashing also minimizes the danger of getting other easily spread infections.
The ‘Hand Wash’ app sends periodic notifications to users to scrub hands thoroughly for 20 seconds in line with WHO recommended best practices. The app designers have also coded a built-in handwash tracker to assist you in recording the entries throughout the day.
Samsung mentions that the app’s interactive UI lets users track their daily wash routine to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Moreover, the appliance also comes with preset reminders, which users can customize further supported their needs and schedule.
The innovative application has been designed by a little group of designers and developers from SRI-B’s UX and wearable teams. Samsung, during a statement, mentions, “SRI-B employees – mostly working remotely from their homes – built the ‘Hand Wash’ app – a wearable app for Galaxy Watch that prompts users to scrub their hands, a key preventive attribute to stay safe.”
Samsung Hand Wash app has the power to trace time and provides users with haptic feedback after 25 seconds of the wash cycle. A fanatical watch face has been designed that shows the period since the last wash to offer users a way of alertness about their hygiene in real-time.

The COVID-19 virus is often spread via our hands. Washing hands with soap and water is an effective measure to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The soap molecules, essentially the amphiphilic, act on the lipid (fatty) bilayer of the Sars-CoV-2 to interrupt them to neutralize the viruses.
