Health care workers try to lift people’s spirits up with dancing videos that go viral

Thank you for everything you do.


To all the medical workers out there: “Thank you for everything you do!”

I am sure that each and every one of you is feeling gratitude towards the nurses, the doctors, and the rest of the hospital staff who are working long shifts and barely take breaks from treating patients, especially during the recent period when the coronavirus is spreading like crazy and a huge number of people are in anticipation of receiving the so much wanted vaccine.

Well, doctors and nurses don’t have it easy, that’s for sure, but they still find the time to cheer their patients and the rest of us up. Just recently, a number of videos showing medical workers dancing in hopes of lifting our spirits up emerged and people love them.

Dr. Jason L. Campbell from Oregon is just one of them. His video went viral and has been seen by around 300,000 people so far.

Dr. Arup Senapati, who is a surgeon in Assam, has also posted a video of him dancing. In the caption of his “performance,” Dr. Senapati wrote how he learned all the moves from his favorite actor, Hrithik Roshan. Once the video spread like a wildfire, the actor retweeted it and wrote: “Tell Dr Arup I’m gonna learn his steps and dance as good as him someday in Assam. Terrific spirit.”

A number of other doctors and hospital staff joined this “challenge” of posting dancing videos in hopes of reminding us that things are going to be just fine. Among them are the medical workers from Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia.

The staff at an NHS hospital in Birmingham, England, also went viral. Their TikTok video was a huge success and reached a huge number of people.

In another video, six cardiology nurses, also from Birmingham, danced to ‘Drank & Drugs’ by Lil Klenie and stole hundreds of hearts.

Jill San Juan, a nurse at Texas Medical Center, showed some awesome moves dancing on “All for You” by Janet Jackson. Along with the video, she wrote: “Keeping our spirits up at the hospital! Please RT/tag show @JanetJackson She’s getting us through rough times! I love you J! #janfam #JanetJackson.”

Janet Jackson has seen the video and wrote back: “I love you too and thank you for all that you are doing!”

We hope the pandemic will soon end and all those who are on the front line in the fight against it will finally take the break they deserve.
