Think about how many times throughout the day you touch something that has been handled by a stranger... Getting your change back in the shop, someone making you a wrap in the deli or even eating a pizza that has been shaped and stretched by two hands.
Lots, right? Now think about the fact that only 74% of Irish people wash their hands after using the toilet.
Basically, for every 10 interactions you have with someone, almost three of them are probs passing germs and - more than likely - feaces.
According to a report by Gallup International, a good 96% of people in Bosnia and Herzegovina wash their hands with soap and water after using the toilet compared to 56% of Italians.
Ireland is pretty rotten compared to quite a lot of our European neighbours...
Please people, just wash your goddamn hands.
