According to CTO head Generose Tecson, their TikTok campaign was launched following Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio’s instruction to make an “online amusement” activity that will keep people off the streets.

Davao’s “Stay at home TikTok challenge” is open to all residents and will let you win cellphone load daily. The mechanics are pretty simple, just create a 15-30 second TikTok video following that day’s theme. The video should be taken at home and bears the hashtag #DavaoLetsKulataCovid.

You can go solo on your video or be in a group but social distancing should be observed. Everyday 20 winners with the most number of reactions will win P50 mobile phone load.

To have more chances of winning, you may submit as many TikTok videos as you can. Upon submission they should indicate their name, age, and barangay address.

The entire Davao City is currently part of a region-wide lockdown to prevent the further spread of coronavirus. Mayor Sara ordered the public to refrain from going out of their houses and only one representative per household is allowed to go out for supplies.

She also ordered the closing of shops in malls except for supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, mall in-house department stores, medical laboratories, as well as the offices of doctors and dentists.

The Davao City government will be rationing food to 50,000 families affected by the lockdown.
