Italy is one of the countries hardest hit by the coronavirus. In fact, on Thursday they passed China on the number of people who have died from the pandemic — that’s an absolute number, which is pretty scary considering that China has far, far more people than Italy. And the Italians have been under a country-wide lockdown since earlier this month.
But that’s not going to stop the Italians from having fun, and a sense of humor about the whole thing. First, there were videos coming out of Italy showing the Italians standing on their balconies and playing music, with other nearby people joining in, or even dancing. Speaking of going viral, who knew music and dancing could stand up to social distancing!
However, even more fun is this video, demonstrating how to prevent spreading the virus with music and dance. Note that there are captions in Italian, but even if you don’t know the language, you should be figuring out what they are demonstrating (if you can’t, you haven’t been paying attention lately!). And be sure to watch at the end, when they have one last joke.
