Dialogue about necessity of washing hands to prevent COVID-19

Write a dialogue between you and your father about the necessity of washing hands to prevent COVID-19.

Myself : Father, why is everybody talking about washing hands?

Father : Well, washing hands with soap and water can kill the corona virus that causes COVID-19.

Myself : I see! But we do always wash our hands before eating and after using the toilet.

Father : Yes! But now, we have to wash our hands more often. Such as, after coming from outside, touching anything that comes from outside, after coughing or sneezing, before wearing and after taking off a mask, after serving a sick person and so on.

Myself : Why do we need to be so careful about washing hands?

Father : Listen, you may touch an object containing coronavirus. Later on, when touch your face with that hand, the virus will get into your body, and you’ll get the disease. So, to avoid this kind of infection, you have to wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds.

Myself : Why 20 seconds, father?

Father : Because it requires 20 seconds to kill coronavirus with soap or alcohol-based hand-sanitizer or hand rub.

Myself : That means I can use hand-sanitizer or hand rub if soap and water are not available.

Father : Right! Remember, you need to scrub your hands thoroughly with soap for at least 20 seconds and clean your fingernails and in between fingers too. And then rinse your hands with running clean water. Use hand-sanitizer if soap and water are not available.

Myself : OK, father. I’ll wash my hands regularly and thoroughly.

Father : Good girl!
