    A song released by China to highlight its partnership with the Philippines against the COVID-19 outbreak is being criticised as propaganda.

    It has been "disliked" more than 100,000 times on YouTube.

    Many Filipinos found the lyrics a thinly veiled attempt by Beijing to reassert its claims over the disputed South China Sea.
