The number one in the country is participating in the #SafeHandsChallenge (healthy hands) operation, launched by WHO on social networks.
Rwandan Head of State Paul Kagame shared a video of his hand washing on Twitter. He joined the #Safehands (healthy hands) campaign, led byWorld Health Organization (WHO) to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
In his tweet, the President of Rwanda challenged a dozen African and international officials. He is particularly targeting his counterparts in Kenya, Senegal, the DRC, South Africa and the British Prime Minister or the director of the IMF. The request is very simple: wash your hands to set an example. Her message is accompanied by a video that has been viewed more than 280,000 times since it went online on March 15, 2020.

To date, few heads of state have responded to the call launched by Paul Kagame who handles communication well. If they have not shared a video of them soaping their hands, they however relay the instructions related to the fight against Coronavirus.

This #Safehands operation was initially launched by the head of WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, on March 14. Since then, well-known figures from the political, artistic, sporting and other worlds have played the game, with or without foam, to spread prevention messages against the spread of the coronavirus. The social network Twitter has created a handwashing emoji.
