To raise awareness for the same, the duo gave out video and audio messages. The initiative is a part of Honourable PM’s ‘Mission Swachh Bharat’.
Speaking on the occasion Amrita said “Hand Hygiene is the topmost measure to prevent the coronavirus.
Many people still think coronavirus is a viral-like cold and flu and while they cover their nose and mouth diligently, they are not at all sensitive about sanitizing their hands with immediate effect as soon as they touch anything that has possibly been touched by or passed on from the hands of another person.
Its high time every effort is made to create awareness, educate and remind people that hand hygiene is crucial.
Not only Covid-19, but all respiratory and intestinal diseases can be reduced by 50% by washing hands with soap.”
