Why You Should Wash Your Groceries?
There are high chances that those essential items that you bought from different stores or shopkeepers might have been exposed to the contagious strain of the coronavirus. Think about the number of people who might have come in contact with these products, the farmers, workers, vendors, wholesalers, retailers and other people involved in the transportation. As the number of COVID-19 cases is increasing rapidly, it is likely that your fruits, vegetables and groceries may be contaminated.
