What is Amitabh Bachchan's message?
In the video, Big B says that the country has been fighting with the Coronavirus pandemic and everybody has to play a role in this fight. He says that Chinese scientists have found that coronovirus is also found in human excreta and it can survive on it for many days - even longer than what was previously thought! So even if a coronavirus infected person fully recovers, the virus still remains active on his excreta. A fly sitting on the excreta is a potential carrier of the disease, he says.
Amitabh appeals to the people to avoid open defecation in line with the PM's message of Swachh Bharat.
Do these 3 things
His appeal to the people is to participate in the fight against the Covid-19, like the country did in Polio eradication.
-- To regularly use toilets
-- Social Distancing
-- Washing hands for 20 seconds or more several times in a day; and never to touch face, nose or eyes
