“Baby Shark” Kids’ Video Promotes Hand Washing Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

by | March 26, 2020

Pinkfong — the brand resposible for viral web sensation Baby Shark — has released a new shark-themed video promoting hand washing for children.

The YouTube video is just under two minutes long and shows a number, but not all, of the steps to clean hands endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The video also encourages children to adapt other healthy habits such as sneezing into a tissue and coughing into their inner elbows, not their hands.

The new video is part of a growing conversation around proper hand-washing technique — sparked by the spread of the coronavirus.

While Ponkfong’s video does not include all suggested steps. The World Health Organization has published a video featuring a comprehensive breakdown.
