Ellen DeGeneres is giving viewers a lesson on hand-washing in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. “I like to keep you up to date on all the latest viral trends,” the host told her audience in a segment on Tuesday. “And there’s a big one sweeping the world right now - it’s not a good one - I’m talking about the coronavirus.”
Naming ways health officials have cited to prevent the spread of the deadly pandemic, DeGeneres said, “It turns out that a lot of people are not washing their hands properly.” Ellen then went on to follow the World Health Organization’s step-by-step guide to hand-washing.
After lathering with soap and rubbing the back of her hands as directed, DeGeneres playfully told the audience that it's recommended to wash hands for at least 20 seconds. Last week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) posted a video for her Twitter followers on how to effectively wash your hands as well.
A few stores nationwide have reported selling out of hand sanitizer, soap and face masks.
