Now let's watch the opposite. Observe what happens when we don’t wash our hands properly. In this video, the model has applied a gel to her hands, which simulates how germs attach to our skin. The gel is actually transparent, but it fluoresces under ultraviolet light and contains particles of the same size as germs and coronavirus.
