Bollywood bombshell Deepika Padukone has joined the ranks of celebrities leading by example in flattening the curve. The actor has joined the popular social media trend – the Safe Hands Challenge in which people are posting videos of themselves washing hands properly, reported Hindustan Times.
“COVID19 surely is an uphill health and public safety task, but all of us are in this fight together! I further nominate Roger Federer, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Virat Kohli to take up this challenge!” the actor said in the tweet accompanying the video.
The challenge was started by the World Health Organisation in order to promote safety precautions amid the current Coronavirus pandemic. “There are simple things we each must do to protect ourselves from COVID19, including Open hands washing with soap and splashing sweat symbol or an alcohol-based rub. WHO is launching the Safe Hands Challenge to promote the power of clean Open hands to fight coronavirus. Join the challenge and share your Open hands washing video!” the WHO had tweeted earlier.
