With the onset of the coronavirus, the world population has seen a major change in lifestyle. Personal hygiene has become one of the most important and easily implementable methods to tackle the virus. There is a constant emphasis on washing our hands for a minimum of 20 seconds with soap or using alcohol based hand sanitizers regularly, especially after touching surfaces which come in contact with a large number of people like door handles, elevator buttons, calling bells, handrails etc.
This project thus focuses on the installation of contactless hand wash stations at public places that are accessible to all. These stations will enable people to wash their hands without coming in contact with any faucet or dispenser and will in turn protect them from any infection or virus.
The installation of contactless hand washing stations aims to give a one stop platform where a person will be able to wash their hands with soap/sanitizer without having to touch any apparatus with their hands. This will ensure proper sanitization and will also help the general public stay protected from viruses and other infections.
Since the covid-19 pandemic has taken over the world, the World Health Organisation has continuously emphasised on the importance of washing hands with soap and sanitizer as the most effective measure to fight the coronavirus. As the virus is likely to stay for a long time according to experts, it is important to retrofit our existing spaces with facilities of hand wash and sanitisation which will ensure that the general public will be able to wash their hands and reduce the spread of the virus.
