Updated July 18, 2020

Thomas A. Russo, MD, professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases, was quoted for a story on the importance of covering the entire hand when using sanitizer. “You get the palm side of your fingers. You’ll get your fingertips, but you won’t get the other side, or between the fingers and the outside of the thumbs. You have to make sure you get all those other parts,” he said.
