The History of Germs and the Importance of Hand Washing

We reminded each other about the importance of washing our hands and we explored the history of 'Germs'. Ignaz Semmelweis was the famous scientist who discovered germs. When he discovered Germs nobody believed him! Other scientists and doctors laughed at him. He even published a book about Germs but people still didn't believe him. Finally, in 1864, 20 years after his death Louis Pasteur confirmed the Germ theory. Semmelweis is now known as the 'Father of Germs'. A stamp was released in Germany as a recognition of his discoveries.
