S. Vidhyalakshmi, M. A. Gopalan
The cone represented by the ternary quadratic Diophantine equation 3(x2 = y2)-5xy = 20z2 is analyzed for its patterns of non-zero distinct integral solutions.

Hygiene is an important aspect to remain healthy. There are various aspects of hygiene. A clean hand is one of them. Hands generally are touched at various surfaces and can be exposed to direct contamination. Cleaning hands at regular interval is recommended by various health organizations including WHO. Hand hygiene is now regarded as one of the most important element of infection control activities. In the wake of the growing burden of health care associated infections (HCAIs), the increasing severity of illness and complexity of treatment, superimposed by multi-drug resistant (MDR) pathogen infections, health care practitioners (HCPs) are reversing back to the basics of infection preventions by simple measures like hand hygiene. This is because enough scientific evidence supports the observation that if properly implemented, hand hygiene alone can significantly reduce the risk of cross-transmission of infection in healthcare facilities (HCFs)1-5. Evidence suggests that hand sanitization significantly reduces the transmission of healthcare-associated pathogens and the incidence of HCAI (healthcare associated infections). According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), hand hygiene encompasses the cleansing of your hands using soap and water, antiseptic hand washes, alcohol-based hand sanitizers (ABHS), or surgical hand antiseptics. These days, alcohol-based hand sanitizers are increasingly being used instead of soap and water for hand hygiene in healthcare settings. Poor or inadequate hand washing and/or hand hygiene is known to be problematic in hospital settings, and is a major source of infections contracted while patients are admitted to a hospital. While hand washing and hygiene policies and training are important and can be effective in reducing the spread of infections, the problem of infections due to unsatisfactory hygiene of staff, medical professionals, and even patients continues to be problematic. It is known to place hand washing stations and hand sanitizer dispensers throughout medical facilities including in examination rooms, hallways, lobbies, and even patient rooms. However, such systems are purely mechanical and are incapable of providing an automated means of establishing accountability of good hygienic practices. During the last quarter of 2019, a collection of unusual pneumonia cases went from a local concern to a global pandemic in a matter of 70 days. The infamous Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2
