WASHINGTON — Americans are washing their hands much more than they did before the coronavirus pandemic, according to new research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The groups less likely to adhere to that guidance were white people, men and people between the ages of 18 and 24, making young white men the picture of handwashing recalcitrance.
Long before the airborne nature of the coronavirus was understood, public health authorities were urging Americans to wash their hands, with the CDC and other agencies offering detailed seminars on how to do so properly. Some believe that public health authorities should have focused more on mask wearing than handwashing, given that the coronavirus does not spread as easily on surfaces as initially thought.
Still, handwashing is considered an essential aspect of good hygiene, whether a pandemic is raging or not.
When the pandemic first arrived in the United States early in 2020, and advice on handwashing proliferated, it quickly became clear that many Americans were simply not washing their hands regularly. Those who were washing their hands were often not doing it properly.
Still, fewer than three-quarters of Americans are washing their hands after coughing or sneezing, or in situations where they handle food, the CDC reported. Nevertheless, more Americans are making the proper ablutions than did a year ago. It is an admittedly thin silver lining, considering that more than 210,000 have been killed by the coronavirus in the United States. Millions have lost jobs.
For the study, the CDC used data collected from Porter Novelli Public Services, first in October 2019, before the pandemic began, and then in June 2020, as the country was in the midst of outbreaks along much of the Sun Belt. About 3,600 people were surveyed the first time around; the second survey included about 4,000 people.

LEDERER Thu, October 21, 2021, 5:51 PM UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 40 mainly Western countries criticized China at a U.N. meeting on Thursday for the reported torture and repression of Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, keeping a spotlight on the region where foreign governments and researchers say an estimated 1 million people or more have been confined in camps. Cuba followed immediately with a statement on behalf of 62 countries saying what happens in Xinjiang is China’s internal affair, and dismissing all allegations as based on “political motivation” and “disinformation.” China’s U.N. Ambassador Zhang Jun spoke soon after, denouncing “the groundless accusations” and unfounded “lies” and accusing the United States and a few other unnamed signatories of the
