Gloria Estefan, one of the biggest stars of the Miami music scene during the 1980s and 1990s, has updated her hit "Get On Your Feet" to raise awareness about how to stem infection from the coronavirus.

The video, released Sunday on the 62-year-old star's Instagram account, has been watched more than 80,000 times already.
