Google pays tribute to father of infection control

CKTB-News- Google Doodle

Google is paying tribute to a pioneer in handwashing in today's Google doodle.  

The animation on Google's homepage illustrates the six steps of correct handwashing, according to Ignaz Semmelweis, a 19th-century Hungarian physician who's been called the "father of infection control."  

Semmelweis is widely recognized as the first person to realize the medical benefits of handwashing, which is now strongly advised in the age of the coronavirus.
