A public service announcement by Vietnam's Ministry of Health on the coronavirus has gone literally viral. "Ghen Cô Vy," a COVID19 version of the V-pop hit "Ghen," has racked up millions of views on YouTube with its catchy hook and strong public hygiene message. Dancer Quang Dang has taken it to the next level with choreography that has carried the song to tens of millions of additional shares on the video app TikTok. We learn the "hand washing moves" that have redefined public health communication during the outbreak. #Vudieuruatay #GhenCoVyChallenge #HandWashChallenge #COVID2019 #coronavirus @im.quangdang 🎥 @jadynbsham @devocnn @danqtham @albertchannnn @sarita555

postponed or cancelled. But in #HongKong, the iconic Wednesday night races are still running... without the fans in the stands.

Is it worse than the flu? How effective are face masks? Will it "go away in April?" At the Foreign Correspondents' Club in Hong Kong, we sat down with two infectious disease experts --HKU Medical School Assistant Dean Dr. Ivan Hung and physician/SARS veteran Dr. Sarah Borwein -- to ask some of the most common questions and claims about the virus. (And, spoiler alert, COVID19 *is* deadlier than seasonal flu -- 10 times deadlier!) 🎥 @jadynbsham @devocnn @alexdicker @hkumed @fcchkfcc
Here in Hong Kong, #MyFreedomDay feels a little different this year. Because of #COVID19, schools are closed for at least two months. But that has NOT diminished students' passion for activism. Here's my conversation with students from the Chinese International School. Please take a listen to what they are doing to help migrant workers in Hong Kong. And be inspired. 🎥 @jadynbsham @devocnn @cishk @maluhk
During the #coronavirus outbreak, students in #HongKong take a break from home learning to discuss the value of freedom and raise awareness to #endslavery. Here’s my conversation with students from the Hong Kong International School. 🎥 @jadynbsham @devocnn @hkisms @hkis_hs @vmgbhk
Just the other day, I asked Brad Olson (@cnnbrad) to retell the time when he filmed Christian Bale's thwarted attempt to visit Chen Ghangcheng in China.
I *loved* that story, and he was full of incredible stories. Brad had worked with CNN for over two decades.
He passed away on Tuesday.
I've been trying to make sense of this and I can't. He was so active, so full of vigour, and so full of "Kristie, have you heard this one?" theories of what was really going on in this crazy world.
The last few months have been a crazy time on a number of levels. And we worked closely together, chasing the coronavirus story in Hong Kong.
After we interviewed a struggling restaurant owner in Causeway Bay, he vowed to return with his wife to support the business. And sure enough, he went back with her to enjoy a plate of that delicious char siu BBQ pork on rice.
Brad was a CNN original with a big heart. ❤️ I can't believe he's gone. 😞 May he Rest In Peace. 🙏🏽
