Now it's TikTok users, who have come forward to join in the awareness campaign to educate and encurage their audience to wash their hands in a bid to prevent the virus.

Amidst the deadly Coronavirus outbreak, international health institutions have been recommending frequent washing of hands as a prime way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus.

While the World Health Organisation (WHO) advised "to regularly and thoroughly clean hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water", the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention emphasised on washing hands for at least 20 seconds, "especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing".

This particular preventive recommendation has created a lot of buzz on social media — whether it's about netizens coming up with playlists to kill those 20 seconds with songs or it's the Vietnamese people dancing to “Jealous Coronavirus" to raise awareness about the global health crisis.

Now, it is the TikTok users who have come forward to join the awareness campaign to educate and encourage their audience to wash their hands in a bid to keep the virus at the bay.
