Dancing In The Dark: Doctor Cheers Up COVID-19 Patients By Busting Moves In Med Gear

Sometimes all you can do is dance, dance, dance. That’s apparently the strategy of a physician in India who’s helping patients battle COVID-19. Dr. Arup Senapati of Silchar Medical College in Assam, India was captured on video busting some moves to entertain patients while wearing head-to-toe protective gear. He danced to the song “Ghungroo” from the Bollywood movie “War,” starring Hrithik Roshan.

Although some complained it was unprofessional, many were moved by both the dance and the physician’s desire to cheer up his patients: In this time of great collective grief, this doctor is the proof that human spirit is invincible.— Exploding Tree Singh, MD 🌊 (@LabyrinthWeaver) 십월 19, 2020 True charity: There is not a lot of joy in hospitalparticularly if one is elderly, away from family, and medical caretakers are dressed like astronauts. This is a rare surgeon who treats mind & spirit as well as the body.— Debra England (@debra_england) 십월 19, 2020 Your colleague is a massively talented dancer. If his dancing has brought joy to those suffering from COVID, than I thank him for the joy he has brought to all who he has performed for.— Joseph Morin 🇨🇦 (@joemorin73) 십월 20, 2020 India has more than 7 million cases of COVID-19.
