The Bollywood star knows how to give clear instructions on how to wash hands properly. She ends the hand-washing challenge by winking at the camera and using a towel to wipe her hands.

She posted the video on twitter with the caption expressing her appreciation for having been nominated by Dr. Tedros and challenge other celebrities to take part in. Deepika took the scope of this message transmission to a higher level when nominating Virat Kohli, Roger Federer, and Cristiano Ronaldo for more significant influence. 

In order for the message to reach as many people as possible, Dr. Tedros is calling out for celebrities to make good use of their popularity for the sake of raising social awareness. WHO initiated the “Safe Hands” challenge and asked people to share videos showing their hands-washing techniques. This global campaign plays an important role in enlightening people with effective methods to protect themselves and others from the wide-spread coronavirus.
