KATHMANDU: Nepali film and music fraternities took an initiative with a music video to create awareness of the novel coronavirus.

As the pandemic spreads around the world, the trend of singing hygiene warnings has also reached glacierized parts of the world from “I Will Survive” singer Gloria Gaynor, to police in Mexico and transit workers in Bangkok.

The video includes Nepali actors, comedians, and singers, including Madan Krishna Shrestha, Haribansha Acharya, Dipakraj Giri, Dipashree Niraula, Sunil Thapa, Saroj Khanal, Sarita Lamichhane, Sambujit Baskota, Jibesh Singh Gurung, Kamala Regmi, Indrajeet Chaulagain, Manahari Poudel.

In the video, the entertainers demonstrate hand-washing, monitoring fevers, and social distancing practices such as avoiding shaking hands. Included in the music video are infographics to help communicate vital information.

Videos such as this one are created in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus which has seen 1.9 million cases in at least 185 countries and territories. Celebrity-filled videos provide a bit of light-hearted news in a time of global crisis.

Coronavirus

Coronavirus.

You can become infected and die from the coronavirus.

In order to survive the coronavirus,

[In the music video this is where they show the public service infographic, which says:

Ways to survive the coronavirus

If you get a fever, if you are coughing, if it is hard to breathe, go to the nearest health post]

you honestly have to wash,

[Just as] we have to tell you honestly.

Coronavirus.

If it becomes difficult to breathe, if you also get a fever,

it becomes difficult as soon as you get a cough.

When this happens, go to your health post.

It’s hard to survive this coronavirus.

You mustn’t go into crowds, even if you have to.

You have to be [strong?].

You have to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Coronavirus.

As soon as you get sick, you have to stay apart.

When you cough or sneeze, you have to cover your nose and face.

Remember, you must not spit all over the place.

Don’t embrace in a hug; instead, let’s greet with a namaskar

Also, instead of shaking hands, greeting from afar.

It’s hard to show proper darshan respect.

You have to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Coronavirus.

 

Just In
