As COVID-19 continues to shake the world, it’s important for people to learn proper techniques and safety measures to take in order to protect themselves from the virus.
And in order to reach a wider group of people, the World Health Organization (WHO) has decided to launch their first couple of videos on TikTok – a up and coming social media app popular especially with the Gen Z folk – to provide information on how to deal with the pandemic.
Instructional videos on TikTok
WHO’s channel on TikTok now has over 143.1K followers and 1.1M likes – not bad!
There are 2 videos at the moment; the first one provides information on when and how to wear a mask.
Moreover, the video also includes information on with how to properly wear and remove the mask, which is extremely important in order to mitigate the spread of the virus.
Their 2nd video deals with proper sanitary techniques to protect ourselves and others from COVID-19. First, they recommend keeping our hands clean with alcohol-based soaps and sanitisers.
Second, cover your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing with your arms or tissue paper. Finally, they suggest for anyone who has any symptoms to see a doctor and to and stay home until you feel better.
Take care of yourself and stay tuned for more videos
Both videos have over 10M views now, and WHO’s efforts to reach out to younger audiences worldwide is commendable.
Aside from this channel, you can also get more information directly from the WHO’s website.
