Now, there's a Hindi version of the same message on TikTok, 'Ja Corona ja, ja corona ja ja ja ja.'

First, there was 'Go Corona Go.' Then there was 'China virus go back.'

Now, there's a Hindi version of the same message on TikTok, 'Ja Corona ja, ja corona ja ja ja ja.'

Sounds a lot like 'Bella Ciao' from Money Heist?

The tune, originally started by Nitin Jani on TikTok, featuring people banging 'bartans,' similar to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call to arms of 'taali balao, thaali bajao.'

Soon, it evolved into Indians burning effigys of COVID-19, made from potatoes which look like the virus, to get rid of it.

No, really.
