Dr Paula Beattie, dermatologist and spokesperson for the British Skin Foundation says, “Keeping hands clean is a key part in the fight against Covid-19. By washing their hands children learn about the importance of cleanliness, not just for themselves, but to protect those they love around them. Through these simple actions they are playing a key role in beating Covid-19."
To celebrate the part children can play, the British Skin Foundation has created The Children’s Wave – a virtual Mexican wave to family and friends for children to show off their clean hands.
It’s quick and easy for your child to take part. Simply visit thechildrenswave.co.uk on your mobile phone and upload two portrait photos of your child waving and smiling. Great fun!
