Are your kids obsessed with showing off the latest TikTok dances? Now it’s your chance to be the cool parent when you show them this latest challenge. In response to coronavirus fears, a Vietnamese dancer named Quang Dang has started a new dance challenge promoting personal hygiene.
The dance is performed to the Vietnamese pop hit, “Ghen Co Vy”by Min and Erik in a collaboration with the Vietnamese Institute ofOccupational Safety and Health. Dang’s dance, referred to as the #GhenCovyChallenge, includes six hand-washing movements, as recommended by the World Health Organization and the Ministry of Health.
The reworked lyrics, translated to English are: “Wash our hands, rub, rub, rub, rub evenly. Do not touch eyes, nose, mouth. And limit visits to crowded places. Push back the virus, corona, corona. Constantly improve your health. And clean your personal space. Let’s improve our social awareness. Push back the virus, corona, corona.”
UNICEF posted the clip on their Facebook page writing, “We love this handwashing dance from Vietnamese dancer, Quang Dang. Washing your hands with soap and water is one of the first steps to protect yourself from #coronavirus.”
