There’s a new social media challenge going around, but this time, to laud the efforts of our frontliners who are busy battling the Covid-19 pandemic.

#ClapChallenge began with radio station Raaga as an appreciation to all those who are working hard during this Movement Control Order. The challenge has caught on with people posting videos and stories of them clapping for those who are called to the forefront during this difficult period.

Many local personalities too have taken to the #ClapChallenge, in hopes of motivating those who have to put their lives at risk for the sake of their jobs.
