No vaccine developed yet, also it takes a few months to reach our homes. Hopefully, however, there is quite a straightforward measure we must take to keep ourselves and our families safe and secure.

Also, the Coronavirus can’t hold its own when challenging with regular soap water. Soap water heartlessly attacks and breaks the fatty layer that protects COVID-19’s cell, rendering it toothless. So, if you want to fight COVID-19, WHO suggests washing our hands thoroughly for a few seconds.

People who are not good at sticking to a routine face a tough time sticking to this new handwashing pattern. Hopefully, Google also comes up with an amazing feature for Wear OS users, which also prompts them to wash their hands at regular intervals.
