CLASH POLL: What Do YOU Think Of The TikTok Videos Of Dancing Medical Professionals?

Written by K. Walker on April 13, 2020

One weird thing about the coronavirus is the number of viral videos of doctors and nurses dancing in hospitals.

Medical professionals are taking videos of choreographed routines performed in hospitals or on hospital grounds, often decked out in scrubs and their personal protective equipment(PPE) like masks, gowns, and gloves.

Some say that this is a reasonable way for medical professionals to let off some steam as the world is in the midst of a global pandemic.

Others claim that this is proof positive that the hospitalizations and consequences of COVID-19 are overblown. Clearly, the Tweeters state, if doctors and nurses can choreograph and rehearse a dance for likes and clicks, the situation isn’t so serious after all.

It seems like a waste of PPE which we have a shortage of right now.

The real problem is that many people are just getting really annoyed with it.

Twitter user Susan St. James seems to have clinched it right here:


Kudos to Susan with the awesome tweet!

This dancing thing isn’t just in the U.S. either… it’s a worldwide thing.

So, what do you think of this new online trend?

Is it cute?

Is it cool?

Is it completely tone-deaf?
