WHO suggests five steps to kicking out COVID-19

FIFA, the international governing body for soccer and the World Health Organization (WHO) have joined forces to combat the coronavirus (COVID-19) by launching a new awareness campaign led by world-renowned soccer players, calling for all people around the world.

The “Pass the Message to Eliminate Coronavirus” campaign promotes five key steps that people should take to protect their health according to the WHO guideline, focused on washing hands, coughing, not touching your face, physical distance and staying at home if you don’t feel well. .

“FIFA and its president, Gianni Infantino, have been actively involved in getting the message out against this pandemic from the start,” said WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus at the virtual launch of the campaign at the headquarters of WHO in Geneva, Switzerland. “Whether through campaigns or funds, FIFA has confronted the coronavirus, and I am delighted that world football is supporting the WHO to eliminate the coronavirus. I have no doubts with this type of support that together we will win ”.

“We need teamwork to combat the coronavirus,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino. “FIFA has partnered with the WHO because health comes first. I call on the world soccer community to join us in supporting this campaign to spread the message even further. Some of the best players who have played the beautiful game have put their names on the campaign and are united in their desire to get the message across to cast COVID-19.

1. Hands:

“Start with your hands,” says Alisson Becker, WHO Goodwill Ambassador for Health Promotion, goalkeeper for Liverpool FC and Brazil, and FIFA’s best male goalkeeper, 2019. “Wash your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based solution. ”

By using this method of washing with soap and water, or preferably with an alcohol-based hand solution, kills coronaviruses that may be on your hands.

2. Elbows:

“Cover your nose and mouth with a bent elbow or bandana when you sneeze or cough,” says Carli Lloyd, a two-time winner of the FIFA Women’s World Cup from the United States. “Discard the tissue immediately and wash your hands.”

The drops spread the coronavirus. By following respiratory hygiene, you protect people around you from contracting viruses, such as colds, flu, and coronaviruses.

3. Face:

“Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose or mouth to prevent the virus from entering your body,” adds FC Barcelona and Argentina forward Lionel Messi, the best FIFA men’s player in 2019, and a multiple winner of the Golden Ball.

Hands touch too many surfaces and can quickly detect viruses. Once contaminated, the hands can transfer the virus to your face, from where the virus can move inside your body, making you feel bad.

4. Distance:

“In terms of social interaction, take a step back,” says Han Duan, who represented China PR 188 times in an international career spanning 11 years. It is advised to make distance of at least one meter from one another.

By maintaining such social distancing, you are helping to avoid breathing drops from someone who sneezes or coughs in the vicinity.

5. Feel – know your symptoms:

“If you feel unwell, stay home,” concludes Samuel Eto’o, former FC Barcelona and Cameroon striker, who represented his country 114 times. “Please follow all instructions provided by your local health authorities.”

If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance.
