Yes. I do.

Thanks for the material... but the amount of water that is wasted is tremendous (even worse if we think about everyone around the world who is lucky to have water at home, doing it). The tap should be washed and closed during the process of using the soap. Then you open again (already clean) and wash your hands.

I think this video is from an American (US) doctor... Is that right?

I see... That's why is so difficult to understand (I mean everything) at first hand!

Hello Josh,

That's right. The doctor has a US accent.

The video makes a big difference.

This video shows us the good pratical to decrease the risk to attrap coronavirus. In France nowaday, we have to stay at home and move only if we need to buy food, drug and go to Hospital. We take care our family and we hope this situation finish in the short time.

This learning video is hightly important for nowadays, when coronavirus is conquering all countries of the world.

Thank you for the task.
I just have a comment regarding the procedure in the video itself. I think the amount of water wasted is too much. The water tap should be closed during the cleaning and reopened only while rinsing. Of course we need to protect against germs but we should keep saving water in mind.
