Explaining targeted hygiene to the public

Telling the public about “critical control points” is too abstract and unhelpful because it gives no indication of “when” it is necessary to apply hygiene practices

It is better illustrated by talking about daily life tasks and situations which they can relate to and which combine to protect them from infection

To know when to act -  it’s always important to be aware  of where the germ danger is coming from.

Keeping our homes  clean  i.e. dirt free does not stop spread of germs, but it helps because  germs don’t survive well in clean dry places.
