A few days ago, a video of a catchy number by American singer Gloria Gaynor went viral on social media.
The foot-tapping hit song from the 70s, ‘I Will Survive,’ makes hand hygiene a pleasure.
Now the Kerala Police in India have taken the hand-washing practice to stem the virus one step further – with a fun dance that leaves fans of social networking sites in splits, according to a report in a section of the Indian media.
Since being shared online, the video has garnered over eight lakh views on Facebook, along with 28,000 ‘shares’ and over 2,000 comments praising the initiative.
The video of the police dance, which was shared by State Police Media Centre Kerala, shows cops performing various dance moves to illustrate the right way to wash hands.
The clip features six policemen, all wearing face masks, shaking a leg to the hit song Kalakkatha from the film Ayyappanum Koshiyum.
“Such a motivating as well as educating video,” wrote one person. “Great choreography,” said another, while a third added, “Good initiative.”
