    A physician in India has gone viral on Twitter after a colleague shared a video of him dancing for patients with COVID-19.

    Dr. Arup Senapati, an eyes, nose and throat (ENT) surgeon at Silchar Medical College, busted a move with no difficulty while wearing a complete set of personal protective equipment (PPE).

    “[He’s] dancing in front of COVID patients to make them feel happy,” said Dr. Syed Faizan Ahmad, who shared the video of his colleague.

    As seen in the video, Arup shows off his moves to the beats of “Ghungroo,” a viral song from the 2019 Bollywood hit “War.”

    The video has received 5.3 million views since its posting over the weekend.

    Many praised Arup for his dancing skills, but more importantly, for his love of duty in these difficult times.

    “He’s too good,” one user commented. “And salute to him and all the front line warriors holding up in these testing times. We are indebted.”

    Another wrote, “All respect to this man, I’ve danced in heavy clothing like this, and in cold weather; doing it in a hospital, in that gear, he must be sweating up a storm. So much respect.”
