Go ahead and pull this fun fact out at your next dinner date.
With the ‘WASH YOUR HANDS’ call to arms being a part of our daily Coronavirus-infested lives lately, in this episode of Vienna’s History Mysteries we explore who this clean genius inventor was. Introducing the Hungarian doctor, Ignaz Semmelweis – the inventor that started the whole wash your hands trend 😉
