Chinese President Xi Jinping is asking people to avoid handshakes or hugs while greeting people
Recently, the Chinese President, Xi Jinping visited a hospital in Beijing where he met people who are struggling with the Coronavirus. He was seen wearing a mask and asking people about their lives and wishing them good fortune and health during such difficult times.
While talking to the citizens, he mentioned that they must avoid themselves from shaking hands as our hands are the body parts that often go towards our mouth and nose which increases the chances of spreading the Coronavirus entering our body.
Spreading of the virus through close contact
A study conducted by Zhang N and Li Y from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, at the University of Hong Kong, has already proven that Influenza A virus has a 45 % chance of spreading through close-contact routes like hugs, handshakes, etc.
