As long as there is life around us, there will always be emotion. However, even though the emotion of joy is hanging by a thread these days, tiny moments which give us happiness need to be celebrated.
A video of medical professionals, donning personal protective suit and dancing to Zingaat from the 2016 National Award-winning Marathi film Sairat has gone viral on social media. The video is said to be from a Mumbai COVID facility.
According to an ANI report, the dance was performed during an entertainment programme hosted by the authorities to celebrate one year operation of the COVID facility. The staff members enthusiastically joined in on the programme and danced to the tunes of the song.

ANI shared the video on Twitter with the caption: “Healthcare professionals of Nesco COVID-19 center in Mumbai’s Goregaon were seen showing off their dance moves inside the patient’s ward during an entertainment program organised on June 2 to mark one year of operations of the center.”
Bonus fact: This is not the first time this COVID facility has found itself in the limelight for viral dancing videos. Last year, during Navratri, healthcare staff members and COVID-19 patients had performed Garba while singing songs. The video had also gone viral on the internet.

Despite doctors being subjected to harassment and assault by family members of patients on a regular basis, it is extremely heartwarming to see this. Medical workers go out of their way to perform their duty to save lives and they should be immensely respected for the same. Attacking them is absolutely unacceptable and strict action should be taken against those who are responsible for such heinous acts.
Currently, Mumbai is witnessing a drop in COVID-19 cases as they are below 1,000 in its daily tally. Maharashtra has been one of the epicenters of the COVID-19 virus.
