International chef Gordon Ramsay has joined the long list of celebrities who ask people for safety and demonstrate basics like washing hands as the world grapples with the coronavirus pandemic.

Ramsay, who is known for losing control of reality cooking shows, appeared in the minute-long video where he explained to people how to wash hands while rubbing his own hands vigorously over a sink. Health experts have advised people to wash their hands for 30 seconds to remove all traces of the virus.

“One of the most important things during the # Coronavirus pandemic is hand washing! So I do it and think about washing myself further and staying safe out there. Please always follow the advice of the health authorities in your country during these times. I think of all Gx (sic), ”wrote the cook in the tweet.

The chef’s tweet soon sparked reactions from the tweeples, with some appreciating him while others addressing the fact that a basic exercise such as hand washing needed a tutorial.

As the world goes against the clock to find a vaccine against the virus that has so far killed over 7,000 people worldwide, the only shield against the infection was regular hand washing, apart from social distance.

In India, celebrities such as Sachin Tendulkar and Deepika Padukone took part in #SafeHands to challenge the COVID-19 threat.
