Vietnamese Catchy Coronavirus Safety Dance Goes Viral
“Ghen Co Vy,” based on the melody of the V-pop hit “Ghen,” was written by Khac Hung, in collaboration with the National Institute of Occupational and Environmental Health. It’s performed by the tune’s original singers ERIK and MIN. The goal is to communicate how to protect yourself from the virus and boost public morale.
“Vietnam made a song about washing your hands to prevent coronavirus infection, and it absolutely slaps,” Oliver said on Sunday’s episode . “That’s a genuine club banger right there.”
“The remote village also prevents and fights the epidemic,” read the caption on a video featuring the Hmong couple.
“I want to use my own language (dance) to spread the right information about fighting Covid-19 to as many people as possible,” Quang Dang tells Billboard about his decision to launch a dance challenge to a coronavirus PSA. “Especially the young people! They usually don’t get the right information.
“I think knowledge is power, this is the information era,” he continues. “We have false information everywhere. So getting the right awareness and right information is very important so we can use our power in the right way.”
