Doctors dance ‘Covid quickly’ before community sampling


Staff members of the Covid-19 testing team, Ho Chi Minh City Dermatology Hospital, in anti-epidemic protective gear, danced to the song “Covid quickly go”.

The members performed a dance before going to take a large-scale Covid-19 test sample in the community, with the desire to “pump” positive energy with an optimistic spirit when participating in the frontline against the epidemic, calling on everyone to wash clean hands, wear mask…

Nurse Cao Thi Yen Ngoc, a member of the sampling team, shared that her job faced many risks because she had to stand in front of people to put cotton swabs in the oropharynx and nose area. These movements easily stimulate coughing and sneezing, thereby spreading the virus to the outside.

Nurse Le Thi Nhu Ngoc said that “there are times when I can’t breathe, I’m so thirsty, I’m numb, the sweat inside the protective vest collects in a puddle”… Hard work, sometimes I come home at midnight For many days in a row, they couldn’t come back to see their children, but the members always kept their spirits and encouraged to complete their tasks well, hoping to soon push back Covid-19.
