COVID-19 is a global pandemic affecting everyone. According to the CDC, “’CO’ stands for ‘corona,’ ‘VI’ for ‘virus,’ and ‘D’ for disease.” Formerly, this disease was referred to as “2019 novel coronavirus” or “2019-nCoV.” There are many types of human coronaviruses including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses.
Many doctors are making silly dance videos that entertain people while they’re in quarantine/social distancing. Some of the main icons of the dancing during COVID-19 are: Kala Baker, Jason Campbell, and Jeffrey Salvatore.
All of the healthcare workers that are dancing are posting their videos on various social media platforms such as: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and the most popular, Tik Tok. They are all getting the positivity they deserve on those platforms.
According to Good Morning America, many doctors are making Tik Tok accounts to post their dancing videos. Tik Tok is a big media platform that has videos that range from 15-60 seconds.
The health care workers are dancing during COVID-19 to bring joy to families at their home and to relieve stress. They strongly advise you to stay home during these uncertain times.
The doctor, Jason Campbell, said that he wanted to “find a way to reach out to the youth in his community.”
Kala Baker claims that her videos “bring joy to a really dark place right now”’ according to CBS.
Jeffrey Salvatore says, “It brings us joy,” he tells CNN. “It lightens our spirits while we are testing outside in the cold and in the rain. It is a mechanism we are using to keep our spirits up.”
The doctors are already saving people’s lives and working 18+ hours, but they are also bringing joy to families and relieving people’s stress. I think we should repay them by dancing alongside them and supporting their hard work.
