Baby Shark Has Released A New Song About Washing Your Hands

Baby Shark Has Released A New Song About Washing Your Hands

Bad news for any parents currently in lockdown with their little ones, because Baby Shark has released a brand-new song that will be stuck in your head for many weeks to come.

The new track has an important, and timely, message about washing your hands with lyrics encouraging people to 'wash your hands doo doo doo doo doo' and 'grab some soap doo doo doo doo doo'.

Yep, that's right, Baby Shark and his adorable mates are joining the fight against covid-19 - that virus does not stand a chance.

It also gives advice about covering your sneeze and coughing into your elbow (doo doo doo doo doo) all important points, I'm sure you'll agree.

The song ends by telling listeners to 'stay safe'. It's basically the public safety video we've all been waiting for.

Given the catchy title 'Wash Your Hands', the song has already been viewed more than three million times. You're already singing it, aren't you?

The original 'Baby Shark' song burnt its way into our brains back in 2016 after it was popularised by South Korean educational brand Pinkfong and there's no doubt 'Wash Your Hands' will be just as popular.

If nothing else if gives us all something new to sing while washing our grubby mitts rather than 'Happy Birthday'.

The World Health Organisation has offered up some advice for hand washing, should you still need it.

For soap and water to be effective, 40-60 seconds of hand washing are required. For alcohol-based hand rub 20-40 seconds is sufficient as alcohol is more potent and works more rapidly.

The temperature of the water is not critical, according to WHO, but it's very important to make sure you dry your hands properly after washing them as coronavirus lives in water droplets and wet hands can more readily acquire and spread microorganisms - or to put it another way: dry your hands doo doo doo doo doo doo.

It's okay to not panic. LADbible and UNILAD's aim with our Coronavirus campaign, Cutting Through, is to provide our community with facts and stories from the people who are either qualified to comment or have experienced first-hand the situation we're facing.
