An Indian doctor who deals with coronavirus patients in Mumbai decided to break the hospital blues with some quick dance moves. Packed from top to bottom in her personal protective equipment (PPE), Rich Negi recorded a video of herself grooving in style to the famous Bollywood number “Garmi” (heat).
The young medic shared the surprising video on Instagram, which has now gone viral on social media.
"We Won’t Let The Negativity Of The Situation Get To Us Even While Serving The Patients In This GARMI-ful But Oh So Graceful Outfit", the caption for the video read.

Even though Negi thought she looked like a “teletubby” – a character in the famous children's television series Teletubbies – netizens only had praise and love for her dance and her work.

On1 July, India marked “National Doctors' Day”. Even though doctors and healthcare professionals currently don't have a particularly celebratory vibe, people from around the world are pouring their gratitude and strength onto the frontline “heroes” of the coronavirus age regardless.
