So it really does seem that people will dance to anything. A music artist in Vietnamese has released a song in partnership with Vietnam's National Institute of Occupational and Environmental Health to alert the population on the worldwide coronavirus outbreak. No lie, the song is pretty catchy, and apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so. Users have taken the catchy tune and created their own dances to it on TikTok. The Vietnamese song advises people to wash their hands, limit visiting crowded places, and not to rub their eyes and mouths.
The National Institute of Occupational and Environmental Health asked Quang Dang to create the dance for TikTok, pushing the song to go viral.
"I think the importance of the song and dance is the RIGHT information that they give to the audience," Dang wrote in an email to CBS News. "And the viral dance will help spread this information to the community. Especially the young people... they tend to not get the right information."
He continued by saying that although the virus has absolutely been a dark spot on society, he's learned a lot from it. "In the dark days like this, Corona virus has made this world upside down," he said. "There are things like dance and music that make us look into the bright side of life, stay positive and connect people. This makes me love dance more than ever!"
