MANILA, MARCH 23, 2020 — With the enhanced community quarantine in effect, social platforms, like TikTok, provide a great avenue to stay connected with the rest of the world. Here are digital ways you can do to fight the new coronavirus:
Access to accurate and timely information is our first line of defense. TikTok created a special page within the platform for you to know the Things About About Coronavirus. These include advisories and preventive measures to protect yourself with the help of the World Health Organization. There’s also a special section called Mythbusters to debunk fallacies about the virus and fight misinformation.
Wash Hands Properly
Because Singing “Happy Birthday” twice for handwashing is pretty much outdated, users and creators on the platform are using their favorite songs for the full, clinically-approved 20 seconds of handwashing!
Earlier this March, the Ghen Cô Vy (English Version) was released in response to a recent PSA from Vietnam which has turned coronavirus caution into a grooving choreography to inspire hand sanitation.
TikTok users are joining the #HandwashTunes challenge to encourage people across the globe to wash hands the right way.
It is safe to assume that sinks will now be the new stadium for 20-second concerts!
Spread the Good
In these challenging times, the things that we should spread right now are Love, Hope and Positivity! TikTok users from around the globe is taking part in the hashtag challenge #LoveInTheTimeOfCorona and you should, too! Get inspired with this video.
Also, music brings hope and peace along with the message of love and compassion. In your TikTok videos, you can use the new collaborative song titled “Forever Beautiful: All for One Version” featuring our very own Ben&Ben alongside Eric Chou and 13 artists across Asia.
Stay Social and Connected While Keeping the Distance
Take advantage of your time at home to catch up on your friends and family through your inbox.
Try new things for self-improvement. Perhaps, learn a new language or try a new dish.
You can also share good vibes and entertain people. This is the best time to create tons of TikTok videos to save in Drafts for future uploading.
Together, we can fight the virus while maintaining our social interactions through the aid of social platforms. Just always remember that like all trials and tribulations in human history,
this too shall pass.
