A bus handrail is a device that is designed to be grasped by the hand to provide stability or support for standing bus passengers during transit.

Handrails are common in large urban public transport such as buses or train.

Handrails in high-capacity mass transit buses are useful for standing passengers, especially during rush hours.

However, in Lagos, the unsanitary condition of handrails in buses is a major cause for concern.

Just like the buses, the handrails exhibit visible signs of filthiness.

With their appearances, it is doubtful that these handrails have ever been cleaned since the buses were purchased.

Such an unhygienic condition could lead to the outbreak of an epidemic.

In Lagos, whose responsibility is it to regulate the sanitary condition of commercial buses?

Good thread by Mr Josh!

We never leave home without our hand sanitizer lailai.

And learning how the nurses wash their hands for 20 seconds multiple times in a day issa good help too.

That's why a good hand washing culture should be encouraged. A little can be done to decontaminate the railings and other handy parts but much can be achieved with a good hand washing culture.
