The spread of COVID-19 is making men wash their hands more often. A survey of 2,000 men found that a third did not wash their hands after using the toilet. However, more men are now washing their hands. People tweeted that last month, it was unusual to see a man using sinks in toilets. Since the outbreak, more men are using them. A man wrote: "For once, there are lines in men's restrooms as coronavirus makes men wash their hands for the first time."
Governments stressed the importance of regular handwashing throughout the day. This is the best way to stop the coronavirus. Doctors have told people to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds - or the time it takes to sing "Happy Birthday" twice. A man said he knew men were washing their hands more when he used toilets on a highway. He said: "There were eight sinks and men were washing their hands in all of them."
