The Greek Ministry of Health published a video on Thursday in which Greek tennis superstar Stefanos Tsitsipas urges people to follow medical experts’ guidelines to prevent any further contagion by the covid19 coronavirus.

In the video, Tsitsipas warns that even if younger people feel well and healthy, this does not mean that they shouldn’t worry about others.

”We shouldn’t think that this is none of our business,” Tsitsipas says in his message.

”Wash your hands and sing the Happy Birthday song twice! This is how much time a proper hand wash needs,” Tsitsipas urges.

The tennis champion instructs the audience at the conclusion of the video to ”Stay at home and listen to the experts.”


Ευχαριστούμε τον Stefanos Tsitsipas για τη βοήθεια. Είναι ένα μήνυμα που πρέπει να ακούσουμε όλοι: προσέχουμε τον εαυτό μας, προστατεύουμε τις ευάλωτες ομάδες.
