The coronavirus pandemic has forced Indian citizens to remain indoors in order to reduce the rate of infection being caused by the disease. The deadly virus has claimed the lives of over 1,500 people with over 46,000 people testing positive for coronavirus over the last month. The COVID-19 crisis has led to a lot of panic and chaos, not just in India but across the globe. A lot of concerned but misinformed citizens have been quick to forward messages on social media without verifying the authenticity of said messages. In a bid to raise awareness against the misleading forwards, TikTok launched the 'Mat Karo Forward' campaign for Indians, an initiative that received considerable backing from Indian athletes.
