Mumbai/IBNS: After Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone, actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas has accepted World Health Organisation (WHO) director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus' "Safe Hands" challenge amid the spread of the deadly Novel Coronavirus across the country.

In a video which was shared Priyanka on Twitter, the Bollywood superstar was seen washing her hands with soap while singing a song.

She tweeted, "I accept the #SafeHands challenge @DrTedros . One of the main takeaways from our IG live yesterday was the importance of washing your hands properly. It’s a simple action that can help save lives..."

She has further nominated actress Kate Bosworth, American comedian-actress-writer Mindy Kaling, her singer husband Nick Jonas, her actress sister Parineeti Chopra and acting legend Amitabh Bachchan for the challenge.

Earlier Priyanka, a popular face in Hollywood now after reigning in Bollywood, had urged people to embrace Namaste, the Indian culture of greeting people by folding hands, to fight the Coronavirus.

So far in India, 650 people including 13 deceased have been infected with the deadly virus.
