BULACAN Governor Daniel Fernando urged “Tik-Tok” users, particularly the Bulakenyo youth to promote the government’s call for the implementation of health and safety protocols, particularly the wearing of facemasks and face shields.
In his message at the Bulacan Polytechnic College-Campus Tour of the provincial government’s Tulong Pang Edukasyon sa Bulakenyo Scholarship Program held on Tuesday in BPC-Pandi, Bulacan, the governor said that since the pandemic started, most of the youths are now having fun in using “Tik-Tok” where many netizens viewers enjoy it on social media.
That is why Fernando called on the students of BPC-Pandi to encourage netizens in following minimum health protocols such as the use of facemask and face shield through social media platform by sharing short-form videos like “Tik-Tok”.
He said, through this, the youth or the “Tik-Tok” users will be able to help the government to implement the guidelines of the Inter Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases Resolutions.
“We are facing a global health crisis so I believe that you (school youths) will have a big participation to prevent the spread of Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in the country, so don’t waste your time on Tik -Tok that doesn’t make sense .. do it significantly by promoting IATF guidelines,” Fernando said.
TikTok is a video-sharing trending on social media platform used to make a variety of short-form videos, from genres like dance, comedy, and education, that have a duration from fifteen seconds to three minutes.
The governor also encouraged them to practice backyard farming in their yards because during the pandemic, vegetables and livestock production are said to be very essential.
