A group of locals in Ghana have been able to come up with an ingenious innovation that is able to pour water for washing hands without having to touch it with one's hands.

The exact location where the small group of locals brainstormed the brilliant invention is not clear but it is obvious that it took place in a Twi-speaking community.

The innovation consists of a bottle filled with water and tied at the neck with a rope that extends downwards to a stick that is left touching the floor slightly.

Watch how the locally-made device works below:

By simply stepping on the stick below with one's leg, the neck of the bottle moves downwards, bending the entire bottle and pouring out the content onto one's hands.

Beside the bottle is a large mass of soap that is supposedly called 'don't touch me' because of its ability to get rid of germs very efficiently.

Perhaps, this method of providing running water for effective hand-washing in these times of the novel coronavirus pandemic should be taught to Ghanaian residents who might be unable to afford alternatives such as veronica buckets
