We need washing points!

As a first step to prevention, having washing points at as many places in your area will help and encourage everyone to keep hygiene.

Kerala government started implimenting washing points at different places in kerala. This will definitely help to reduce the infection by helping and encouraging others to do hand wash, where previously it was not available. These places can be a train station, market area, bus stand, and any other place where people gather or interact due to necessity.

Hi Afsal cmk  welcome to the challenge. I like that the idea of installing washing points as it drives people to take action after hearing the messages. I'm based out of Nairobi and we have seen the government do the same. I'm curious your thoughts on how to make this a sustained behaviour among the people
