Google Doodle honours 19th-century doctor Ignaz Semmelweis, the first person to prove that handwashing saves lives.
Google explained that the doodle follows the official guidelines on how to properly wash your hands from the World Health Organisation.
“Today’s Doodle recognises Hungarian physician Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis, widely attributed as the first person to discover the medical benefits of handwashing.
“On this day in 1847, Semmelweis was appointed Chief Resident in the maternity clinic of the Vienna General Hospital, where he deduced and demonstrated that requiring doctors to disinfect their hands vastly reduced the transmission of disease,” Google wrote, explaining the doddle.”
