Musician Neil Diamond is doing his part in making sure the public remains focused on staying healthy and at home by bringing in some positivity during this dark phase as coronavirus escalates.
Taking to Twitter, the singer posted a video of himself singing a rendition of his hit song Sweet Caroline, but with altered lyrics that encourage fans to practise social distancing.
"I know we're going through a rough time right now but I love ya. I think maybe if we sing together, well, we'll just feel a little bit better,” he said in the video.
Kicking off the rewritten song in times of the COVID-19, he sang: "Hands...washing hands. Reaching out...don't touch me, I won't touch you!"
The video has become the talk of the town, racking up over 100,000 likes within no time.
Earlier on Sunday, the musician had also lauded healthcare workers and front liners of the disease.
"Thank you, healthcare workers, first responders, supermarket employees, foodservice and utility workers, delivery drivers and everyone out there who is on the frontlines to keep everyone safe. We applaud you!!!" read his tweet.
