Men are washing their hands more often. A survey found that a third of men did not wash their hands after using the toilet. People tweeted that last month, it was unusual to see a man using a sink in toilets. COVID-19 has made more men use them. A man said: "For once, there are lines in men's restrooms."

Doctors said regular handwashing is important to stop the coronavirus. They said people should wash their hands for 20 seconds - the time it takes to sing "Happy Birthday" twice. A man was surprised when he used a public toilet. He said: "There were eight sinks and men were washing their hands in all of them."
