“If you have a fever, 37.5 or over, you need to immediately see a doctor”, Lakchai sings in the video.
Not just Worrawut, the video also features young students, farmers and the elderly dancing at various locations to keep fit to ward off diseases.
“As a teacher, I wanted to create awareness for students, their parents and the community. So I thought of making music to fight the coronavirus,” says Worrawut.
As to why he chose Batman for his act, he says, “Batman is a superhero who doesn’t have any magical powers but he can fight his enemies with his own strength … Similarly, we have to fight a deadly disease with our strength and awareness.”
“Eat hot food, use serving spoons, wash your hands. It’s what we must do, to fight corona,” sings Worrawut.
Thailand has reported more than 200 cases of the new coronavirus so far.
