a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available, practicing social distancing and wearing masks, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends people wash their hands often -- with soap and water -- to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Although the CDC doesn't define how many times "often" is, five or more times a day likely aligns with the CDC's recommendation.When asked how many times they washed their hands or used hand sanitizer the previous day, the world's population seems to be complying.
