Proper handwashing with soap is the topmost measure to prevent the spread of the virus.

It is important to make handwashing a daily habit. Good handwashing with soap can save more lives than any single vaccine or medical intervention. I would be happy if this effort is able to bring a difference in the lives of many people," Rao added.
