I wash my hands and take showers, so why should I care?

I can't tell you enough, after this year of pandemic, what I learned in grade school never prepared me for what I found out later in med school.


It's everywhere! On the toilet handle, on your computer keyboard, your phone, under your fingernails, everywhere! But do you really know what bacteria is?
