Medical professionals worldwide are currently battling the deadly coronavirus outbreak on the frontline since it originated in late December in China. However, recently, videos have emerged of doctors “dancing their stress away” in Iran where the confirmed cases are over 3,500 and more than 100 deaths have occurred as of March 5. The short clips of medical officials in Hazmat suits and masks dancing to traditional Iranian music have taken the internet by the storm. While most internet users are saying that “God shall bless them” for doing their job amid the rising fear of epidemic over the easily spread fatal virus, some have also called it “Corona dance”.
