The international football governing body FIFA and the World Health Organisation (WHO) on Monday, teamed up to combat the coronavirus by launching a new awareness campaign led by world-renowned footballers.

The campaign; “Pass the message to kick out coronavirus”, called on all people around the world to follow five key steps to stop the spread of the disease.

The campaign promotes five key steps for people to follow to protect their health in line with WHOs guidance, focused on handwashing, coughing etiquette, not touching your face, physical distance and staying home if feeling unwell.

WHO director-general Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said FIFA and its president Gianni Infantino have been actively involved in passing the message against this pandemic since the beginning.

“Be it through campaigns or funding, FIFA has stood up to the coronavirus, and I am delighted that world football is supporting WHO to kick out the coronavirus. I have no doubt with this type of support that together we will win.”

Infantino said that teamwork was needed to combat the coronavirus.

“FIFA has teamed up with the WHO because health comes first. I call upon the football community worldwide to join us in supporting this campaign to pass the message even further.

“Some of the greatest players to have played the beautiful game have put their names to the campaign and are united in their desire to pass the message to kick out Covid-19.”

Twenty-eight players are involved in the video campaign, which is being published in 13 languages.

FIFA have also pledged $10 million to support the Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO.
