    The alcohol kills it but it doesn't always remove the microbes from your hands. Soap and water work best and are generally a lot less harsh on your hands. Hand sanitizer is fine if you don't have access to a sink, but  ideally you should be washing your hands.

    Only if the hand sanitizer contains at least 60% alcohol and you start of a sufficient in one palm and thoroughly  distribute it over your hand between fingers, under finger nails , takes about 20 to 30 seconds

    That is a proper way, because hand sanitizers are good hygiene.

    Yes. Assuming higher than 60% alcohol and that it is used properly, then the alcohol will break the virus outer "casing", killing the virus.

    They do help a lot if you are not by a sink, but soap and water does a much better job.
