Vietnamese song “Ghen Co Vy” (Jealous Coronavirus) was composed by Khac Hung – a musician born in the northern province of Yen Bai.

The song was praised on "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”, a popular US late-night talk and news satire television programme hosted by comedian John Oliver.

It has attracted a lot of viewers on HBO channel and received positive feedbacks.

English-American comedian and writer Oliver described the song as an "incredible" public information video about how to restrain the spread of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) through proper hygiene.

"Ghen Co Vy” was covered from "Ghen” (Jealousy), a popular joint music product of pop singers Min and Erik, composer Khac Hung, and the Ministry of Health.

The music is not only for entertainment purposes but also aims to raise public awareness of COVID-19 prevention.

John Oliver has praised this creativity of the Vietnamese health ministry and artists.

"Vietnam made a song about washing your hands to prevent coronavirus infection and it absolutely slaps! That’s a genuine club banger right there!", he remarked.
