A video of a Turkish doctor breaking into a moonwalk after an improvement in the condition of a Covid-19 patient became a hit on social media.
Dr Adnan Menderes Vural, who works at the Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine Hospital in Ankara, was celebrating the improvement in the condition of a Covid-19 patient who was being taken off the ventilator.
The anaesthesiologist broke out into a dance in the hospital ward and did a moonwalk while still in a protective suit and gear.
After his video went viral, the 34-year-old doctor said the dancing was an impromptu response to seeing the elderly patient recovering from respiratory distress after a week. The doctor said it was a reflection of their joy and he hoped the positivity would spread.

This doctor at a Turkish hospital was so overjoyed when a #COVID19 patient of his got well enough to be taken off the ventilator that he did a Michael Jackson moonwalk (he’s pretty good at it too)His message is one of hope. We’ll get through this together. Stay home. Stay safe. https://t.co/6VSXpNypNY
