Along with reaching out to people and asking them to stay indoors, the divas have been taking up the WHO ‘Safe Hands Challenge’ too where they are telling everyone on how to wash their hands to keep them free from the virus. The WHO has released a video which shows how one can wash their hands.

The times are tough but if we all fight it together; we can defeat the virus and restore the living back to its normal self. Many beauty pageants have been postponed due to the spread of the virus. The beauty queens are doing their bit by staying indoors and we all should do the same.
