Afternoon doctor, I want to ask whether it is true that hand sanitizer is only able to kill bacteria and not able to kill viruses?

1 Answer:

Hi CoolVID,

Thank you for the question.

Today, many types of hand sanitizers on the market, with different content so that the effectiveness can also be different. Hand sanitizer itself is a liquid or gel that can be used to keep hands clean, free from dirt and pathogenic microorganisms (the cause of disease). Not only bacteria, a variety of other microorganisms, including viruses, fungi, and parasites can be prevented by using the correct hand sanitizer. So, it is actually quite incorrect to say hand sanitizer can only kill bacteria as you say.

However, you also need to know, that the use of hand sanitizers is actually less effective when compared to washing hands properly using soap. By washing your hands properly using soap, the potential for dirt and microorganisms to stay in your hands can be greatly minimized. Therefore, hand sanitizers should only be used in times of urgency, such as when away from water sources.

Hope this helps ...
