Calling the frontline workers, the true warriors in COVID-19 fight, another user said,

Indeed, hats off to Dr. Arup Senapati, he has put his heart and soul into the dance, very concerned about his patients. Thank you so much you too, Dr. Ahmad for sharing. You all are great warriors.

Please Convey our regards. Covid-19 Patients are under stress and fear. Going out of the way to Relax them is really amazing, added another Twitter user.

This is not the first time; a doctor is seen dancing to Bollywood tunes during the pandemic. Since the onset of coronavirus crisis in the world, several professionals, from doctors to police personnel, who have been working non-stop to ensure the safety of people, have started to engage in activities that help ease the pressure off, such as dancing. In June, a video of three doctors from Bengaluru’s Victoria Hospital dancing to an old Hindi song while wearing PPE kits had also gained a lot of attention on social media.

NDTV – Dettol Banega Swasth India campaign is an extension of the five-year-old Banega Swachh India initiative helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. It aims to spread awareness about critical health issues facing the country. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign highlights the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children to prevent maternal and child mortality, fight malnutrition, stunting, wasting, anaemia and disease prevention through vaccines. Importance of programmes like Public Distribution System (PDS), Mid-day Meal Scheme, POSHAN Abhiyan and the role of Aganwadis and ASHA workers are also covered. Only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and become a Swasth or healthy India. The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollutionwaste managementplastic banmanual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene
