Osher began his video by explaining how important hygiene is to preventing the spread of COVID-19. 

‘So to not get it, the most important thing you can do is to wash your hands. Soap and water, 20 seconds,’ he said.

Osher thoroughly washed every part of his hands, including the insides of each finger, and reminded his followers to make sure their home surfaces are clean.

Osher said that a good way to remind yourself about the 20-second rule is to spell out the word ‘coronavirus’ twice while washing your hands.

He added: ‘If we all do this together, we’re going to be alright.’ 

Osher also explained that viruses are held together by fats and soap is required to dissolve them.  

‘The nanoparticle that is coronavirus itself is held together by lipids [fats] – and soap dissolves them, the structure just falls apart like a dropped Lego model,’ he said.

‘Although we have been employing extra precautions on set for some time, it is no longer practical to continue with production.

‘These are extremely difficult times for all Australians and for our industry, and the full extent of those difficulties will not be known for some time to come.’
