... Each year in Scotland, around 10,000 people contract the infection Clostridium difficile because of poor hand hygiene. Across the UK more than 750 people reportedly die from and almost one million are ill with infections and viruses that can be passed on or contracted by not washing hands.quotesmarksleft.jpg
