How far would you go to keep your spirits up during this confinement? Most of us have the luxury of reading a book or starting a new show on the best OTT platforms. But what about those who are forced to stay away from home? These healthcare workers or those who fell prey to the virus? How do they bring hope to life?

In Moga and Baghapurana districts, health workers are doing all they can to keep everyone in a good mood and boost morale. Recently, hospital staff have carried out Giddha, the Punjabi folk dance, to boost the morale of coronavirus patients in their hospitals.

Video of hospital staff playing Giddha as well as some of their patients have been shared widely on social media, bringing smiles to make faces. In the video, you will see hospital staff dressed in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), dancing and performing the traditional Punjabi dance in the isolation rooms of the hospital, and being cheered by all around them .

In an interview with an information portal, Moga Civil Surgeon Adesh Kang explained that hospital staff and healthcare workers are doing everything possible to boost the morale of coronavirus patients while ensuring that patients are well taken care of, eat healthy and are on the right path to recovery. “With this goal, health personnel stationed at Moga and Baghapurana hospitals practiced Giddha to maintain patient morale,” Kang said, adding that Moga has 44 active cases of COVID-19.
