Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many are staying at home and doing less in terms of social interactions and exercise. The Angry Birds want to help people stay happy and healthy even when stuck at home, so “Angry Birds Friends” is holding an in-game event to raise awareness and give tips on staying healthy.
The Stay Active tournament features 24 new levels themed around sports and healthy living, as well as World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations and tips to stay active.
“WHO continues to advise people to find ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle — and protect their mental and physical health – including during periods when spikes in COVID-19 transmission means they’re spending more time at home,” says Andy Pattison, team lead, digital channels, department of digital health and innovation, WHO. “We encourage people who play interactive games and pursue other sedentary activities to incorporate movement into their routines and protect their mental and physical health when it’s needed most.”
The Stay Active tournament began Monday, July 26 and continues through that week.
