Amitabh Bachchan, on Tuesday, shared some vital information on the deadly coronavirus through a video message which he shared on social media.
Citing a study published in The Lancet, the Shahenshah of Bollywood wrote in a tweet, “Coronavirus lingers on human excreta much longer than in respiratory samples.” He drove his point home by explaining how the disease can spread if people infected with coronavirus defecate in the open.
Big B also urged people to launch a mass campaign against coronavirus as they did for Swachh Bharat Mission and Polio Mission.
Big B has asked people to fight COVID-19 by simply adopting three habits – use of own toilet instead of defecating in the open, practice social distancing and wash hands multiple times in a day.
He ended the video giving a tagline, ‘Darwaza Band toh Beemari Band!’
The clip has got an overwhelming response from his followers. It has garnered over 303K views and more than 34K likes.
