This hand-washing Peppa Pig advert was put out by the World Health Organization (WHO) to help to familiarise children with the concept of washing their hands a little extra during the novel coronavirus pandemic. The recommendation is to wash hands for at least 40 seconds, in order to get hand hygiene to a level likely to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Singing the song is optional!
