The outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) and the virus has now spread to many countries and territories. While a lot is still unknown about the virus that causes COVID-19, we do know that it is transmitted through direct contact with respiratory droplets of an infected person (generated through coughing and sneezing). Individuals can also be infected from touching surfaces contaminated with the virus and touching their face (e.g., eyes, nose, mouth). While COVID-19 continues to spread, it is important that communities take action to prevent further transmission, reduce the impacts of the outbreak and support control measures.
You can reduce your chances of being infected or spreading COVID-19 by taking some simple precautions, such as:
– Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
With that in mind, the fans came up with an idea of spreading awareness of the regular hygiene measures that each one of us must follow.
What else could have been a better way of delivering it, than to come together and pass it on to our footballing fraternity. But, just to add a little twist to it, we have played a small challenge among ourselves.
So, here we go! Presenting to you the #PASStheSANITIZER challenge that we played among each other, between the football fans of ISL & I-League clubs.
