Pantun vs Pandemic

It’s World Poetry Day on 21st March, and what better time to talk about this particular social media initiative to combat the spread of COVID-19: healthcare professionals and others have been coming up with “pantun” on the importance of staying at home. We look at how this started, and why it is essential to continue spreading this message.
