In the video Chibbers says “As you all know all of us are going through a tough situation globally. And this (COVID-19 disease) is one of the mose difficult opponent we will have to ever face. It is an opponent we all need to face together. So pledge to wash your hands and maintain social distance. Stay at home to break the chain and kick the COVID-19 pandemic away.”
