Laguna Has a Coronavirus Mascot, and the Twitterverse Can't Believe It
They even have a coronavirus jingle.
(SPOT.ph) Health experts around the world recommend three things that authorities should do to stop COVID-19 from spreading in communities: mass testing, contact tracing, and isolation. Residents, on the other hand, have the responsbility of wearing face masks, maintaining physical distancing, and washing their hands frequently. But San Pablo City Mayor Loreto S. Amante has other things in mind for Laguna's fight against the coronavirus: a "distancing stick," a special jingle, and a COVID-19 mascot named Mr. COVID. This campaign was revealed during Coordinated Operations to Defeat Epidemic Team's visit to San Pablo City, Laguna on August 15.
The original video is up on Radio Television Malacañang - RTVM's Facebook page. You can skip to the 30-minute mark to start listening to the whole song—if you really want to.
The Twitterverse, of course, has the funniest things to say about Mr. COVID:
COVID-19 is offended.
At least they're consistent.
Mr. COVID looks like an angry version of Pami.
The extra layers might work.
That's one way to put it.
Are we doomed?
Imagine Suzy and Geno as back-up dancers to Mr. COVID.
COVID-19 dance craze on TikTok, anyone?
All together now: "Coronaaaa, lumayo ka...."
