In a video recently shared on the official Twitter account of Swachh Bharat, Ms. Sharma who is also an ambassador of Swachh Bharat Mission can be seen urging the people to stop open defecation and making them aware of the health hazard that it is. Ms. Sharma says in the video,

When women all over the country had decided that they would educate everyone on the lesson of close the door, shun the disease, no one had thought that their initiative would turn into such a huge wave! Today, in the time of coronavirus pandemic, we all have to again remember and remind others about the lesson of cleanliness.

The new video aims at telling the citizens of the country that the COVID-19 crisis can be curbed through strict sanitation processes. The video is part of Swachh Bharat Mission’s ‘Darwaza Band toh Bimari Band’ awareness campaign that aims to encourage people to use toilets and raise awareness on the the hazards of open defecation. Ms. Sharma further says,

If we take care of cleanliness around us, by not defecating in the open, we will keep ourselves healthy and India clean. We will become strong to fight against any kind of disease. Drive the disease out of the country by stopping defecating in the open and close the toilet door at all times.
