Soap in the City video

Soap in the City video was developed by ORL Productions. Tells the story of Typhoid Mary in a brief and entertaining way that will echo in your memory! It also provides a memorable example of a girl washing her hands for as long as it takes to sing Happy Birthday, and it gives a summary of the situations where hands should be washed. Proper hand washing could prevent millions of illnesses each year. Methicillin Resistant Staph aureus (MRSA), salmonella, and E. coli outbreaks are examples of preventable diseases often spread by poor hand hygiene.
