A study reveals the habits of Italians regarding hygiene in public spaces

If the pandemic has taught us anything, this is certainly the importance of hand hygiene (and not only) in public spaces. In this sense, Covid has certainly left positive habits in the population, which today appears more attentive than ever to cleaning hands and mucous membranes, especially in shared environments. A recent Dyson study reveals that Italy is one of the most virtuous countries in this sense. The research was conducted last year, in July 2021, on a sample of 15,000 respondents in 20 countriesincluding Italy.

Hygiene and public spaces: the results of the Dyson research

The research reveals that in the world, in 2021 compared to 2020, there was a significant drop in users who claimed to wash your hands 5 or more times a day (from 84% in 2020 to 74% in 2021). In Italy, however, the decline was decidedly slight (from 89% to 84%). It is no coincidence that Italy is in the Top 5 of the most virtuous countries in terms of hand hygiene. Tail light the Japan, where only 1 in 2 people do it.

Despite the tendency towards hygiene among Italians, they still show a certain mistrust of public toilets. In July 2021 it is indeed 75% of Italians say they are even more worried about using it than the previous year.

In particular, the main concerns are:

  • Dirty toilets
  • lack of toilet paper
  • blocked drains

But not only: for 50% of Italians the greatest concern is in fact that of having to touch physical buttons (against 38% of the global average), while 26% are afraid of dry your hands with unclean air. A problem therefore, Dyson points out, of a technological approach. In fact, traditional hand dryers could be replaced with more technologically advanced ones. The inclusion of air cleaning filters would reassure 50% of Italian respondents, and touchless technology 55%.
