(WWLP) — The World Health Organization (WHO) posted the challenge, #SafeHands, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has been getting the attention of many celebrities

The challenge, starting with Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhan Ghebreyesus, asks everyone to use their social media platforms to promote “regular, safe, and effective hand hygiene.”

“Show where and how you wash your hands. Join the WHO #SafeHands challenge,” posted Dr. Ghebreyesus in video post.

Ghebreyesus explained that handwashing is one of the practical measures that people can take to protect themselves, and even demonstrated the process of effective washing.
