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.
