Authorities around the world are trying to hammer home the message that we have to wash our hands to protect against the spread of the new coronavirus.

In Vietnam, they’ve produced a music video along with a dance challenge – the tune has taken the country by storm and has since gone global.


Lyricist Khac Hun wrote the song with Vietnam’s National Institute of Occupational and Environmental Health as a PSA to teach people how to thoroughly wash their hands during the worldwide coronavirus outbreak.

The lyrics to the song advise people not to rub their eyes and mouths, limit going to crowded places and stay clean.

A popular dancer in Vietnam, Quang Dang, choreographed moves to go with the lyrics and sparked the “Ghen Cô Vy Challenge” on TikTok.

Now, people around the world are dancing to the song on social media, sharing a message about the importance of hand washing to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.
