The World Health Organisation (WHO) has been an important source for delivering the latest and accurate information regarding Covid-19.
It is also helping countries to prepare and respond to the pandemic by identifying major actions countries need to take and the resources needed to carry them out.
As we approach the halfway mark to the Summer Olympics and fans across the world are cheering for their national athletes, WHO are also joining in on the Olympic spirit using different Olympic sports to demonstrate five different tactics we can follow to “win” over the pandemic.
In a recent Facebook post, the WHO reminded us to to:
- Wear a mask – like they do in the Olympic sport of Fencing.
- Clean your hands – followed by a graphic for Rugby with arms bent in a hand washing position instead of holding a ball.
- Keep physical distance – like in Artistic Swimming where swimmers gives each other space to maneuver.
- Cough/sneeze away into your elbow – like your elbow position while batting during Baseball/Softball.
- Open windows as much as possible – because ventilation is important to reduce the transmission of Covid-19, but in the context of Sailing, the most important thing a sailor can do is getting in tune with the wind.
While the athletes at the Olympics are competing in their respective fortes, we all share what may be our toughest opponent yet – Covid-19.
