Gloria Gaynor is being extra vigilant while the global Coronavirus pandemic is currently unfolding and she is urging fans to do the same.

The 70-year-old popstar has taken to her social media to reeducate fans in the art of handwashing by using her hit song 'I Will Survive'.

The recommended time to spent washing your hands is 20 seconds, and it turns out the chorus of her song fits that timing perfectly. In Gloria's video she can be seen lathering her hands with soap while singing along to the song in the mirror.

"It only takes 20 seconds to “SURVIVE”!" she captioned the now viral clip.

Fans rushed to share their own versions of the "#IWillSurviveChallenge" where they could be seen washing their hands along to Gloria's video.

Gloria later posted on Instagram: “Thank you for supporting me and my team’s efforts to keep everyone safe & healthy during these trying times!”
