The coronavirus pandemic increased the emphasis on sanitation, the use of face masks and maintaining physical distance to protect against contracting the infection.

Disinfecting surfaces that one comes in contact with on an everyday surface is also another habit that should become a part of the drill.

Network18 and Lizol have launched a special campaign 'Disinfect to Protect' that aims to take this message to every home and citizen of the country.

Common surfaces that should be disinfected regularly are tables, floors, door knobs and handles, children’s toys, and kitchen slabs, among others.

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan have also backed this campaign. Through video messages shot at home, the actors raised awareness on this issue as they went about cleaning their house, which has been strongly emphasised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as well.
