WHO is launching the #SafeHands Challenge to promote the power of clean Open hands to fight #coronavirus. Join the challenge & share your Open hands washing video!”

The coronavirus pandemic has infected over 2 lakh people in 166 countries and territories around the world and has claimed more than 8,010 lives. China is by far the worst-hit country where the virus initially started spreading.
