As the Coronavirus continues to spread and people are finding themselves quarantined at home, individuals are finding themselves with more time on their hands.

Tik Tok is now flooded with videos shedding light and finding humor within these new and bizarre situations.

Tik Tok has also started to implement safety measures on the app. #Coronavirus shows videos from organizations such as the World Health Organization and the World Economic Forum. Plus, videos with this hashtag have a notice to contact local health authorities for updated information.

Mostly, Tik Tok is a great place for others to see how people are living through this pandemic. Social media and this app in particular have always been a way to see into others lives, and now that most of us are stuck at home for a while, it’s a way for us all to connect without risk of infection.
