As per the World Health Organization (WHO), one has to regularly wash hands to protect himself/herself against the coronavirus. People must wash their hands with soap and water before drying them thoroughly or use an alcohol-based hand rub/sanitizer if they do not have immediate access to soap and water, WHO added.
Earlier, the cricketer posted a video urging people to practice social distancing and stay indoors to help restrict the spread of COVID-19. Kaif also welcomed the 21-day lockdown announced by the government. "Stop the virus from scoring big. Be your own captain! Spread the field. Practice Social Distancing and remember our PM's advice," Kaif wrote along with the video message that he shared on twitter.
