Intensive care unit nurses and doctors at a Canadian hospital can be seen in a now-viral online video happily dancing after a coronavirus patient was taken off a ventilator.

In the 11-second clip posted to Twitter last week by the chief of medicine at Ontario’s Markham Stouffville Hospital, more than a dozen nurses and doctors in their scrubs and protective gear can be seen dancing in celebration in a single-file line as they move down a hall at the medical facility.

“The ICU team @MSHospital has been working night and day for the health and safety of each other and our many ventilated COVID patients so when we extubate one…… we dance,” tweeted chief of medicine Anand Doobay.

The video has been viewed on the social media site more than 1 million times.

Canada has more than 26,000 confirmed coronavirus cases with a total of 823 deaths from the virus, according to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center.
