The song, entitled "Ghen Co Vy," was composed by Khac Hung and performed by singers Min and Erik. The show on March 1 attracted attention of not only American audiences but also Vietnamese audiences after an user named Todd Zinck uploaded a clip cut from the show on Youtube.

On the show, English-American comedian and writer John Oliver praised Vietnam for being active in combating the Covid-19 epidemic. He said that Vietnam is a typical country in fighting Covid-19 and Vietnam has provided reliable information on the prevention of the epidemic spread and proper hygiene. 

"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 said.

 

It also featured a clip, uploaded on Chinese video-sharing social network TikTok, showing two people dance to the catchy song. The dance, part of a TikTok dance challenge, was reenacted by Oliver at the end of the episode.

The song, created by the National Institute of Occupational and Environmental Health, is a parody of a popular song, also by Khac Hung, Min and Erik called "Ghen" (Jealousy). Ghen Co Vy, with "Co Vy" (Ms. Vy) a local nickname for the new coronavirus, posted on the institute’s YouTube channel on February 14.

So far Vietnam has reported 16 covid-19 infection cases. All of the patients have recovered.
