The World Bank. COVID-19 Makes Handwashing Facilities and Promotion More Critical Than Ever (2020)



"As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads across the globe, millions of people are heeding the advice of health experts to wash their hands. But for 3 billion people around the world who do not have access to clean water and soap, this small action to prevent infection remains out of reach.
