Indian women’s hockey team skipper Rani Rampal joined WHO’s #SafeHandsChallenge to promote the importance of washing hands amid the coronavirus outbreak.
In a video shared by the ace skipper, Rani is seen washing his hands thoroughly in an attempt to spread the importance of hygiene amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“I accept #SafeHandsChallenge from @sudarsansand @HimaDas8 I request everyone to take precautions and #StaySafe. I further challenge @SjoerdMarijne @waynelombard @boxervijender @KarmanThandi @geeta_phogat @BabitaPhogat @Sangram_Sanjeet to make sure people around you stay safe,” Rampal tweeted.
She further challenged women’s team head coach Sjoerd Marijne, boxer Vijender Singh, wrestler Geeta Phogat, Babita Phogat, and three more to take the Safe Hands Challenge.
Earlier, ace Indian shuttler P.V. Sindhu had also taken up the challenge and had posted a video on Twitter in which she was seen washing her hands with soap for almost 30 seconds.
The World Health Organisation, which has declared coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, has been continuously asking people to wash their hands with soap regularly to avoid infection.
Overall, 7,000 people have lost their lives across the world. In India 126 confirmed cases have been reported so far and three people have lost their lives due to coronavirus.
