TikTok, like other social platforms, has been flooded with videos about COVID-19, the coronavirus disease, which has now resulted in more than 4,000 deaths and 118,000 cases in China and around the world. 

With more than 1.5 billion downloads worldwide, TikTok has become an integral part of the social-sharing atmosphere where people turn for information and entertainment on a daily basis. Some have taken to TikTok to set the record straight on coronavirus. The World Health Organization, for example, recently created a TikTok account in order to share information about the outbreak amid the deluge of news and fear that have flooded the internet.

Users have created TikTok videos showing how life has changed on college campuses, cracking dark jokes about the disease, and poking fun at the precautions many are taking in the face of coronavirus.
