  • Health workers cheer up country wit...

Despite being sealed off from the outside world by a Covid-19 outbreak, villagers in the Northeast have found something to laugh about – and their chuckles are spreading across the country.

Video of a humorous performance by four health staff in personal protective suits that helped relieve stress at the Samet Moo 7 community in Buri Ram's Krasang district went viral on Sunday.

Posted on TikTok by user pupu_pupu555, the clip shows staff from Nong Teng Health Promoting Hospital, encased in white biohazard suits, dancing for the villagers under their care.

The community of 429 people and 206 households was closed on May 16 to contain an outbreak after four residents tested positive.

The health staff said they were surprised their show on Friday (May 21) proved such a hit among residents as they waited for Covid-19 tests.

Tharapong Wongsirilertchon, a public health official at Nong Teng Health Promoting Hospital, said the activity had a positive effect by relieving pressure on people in the quarantined community.

The community-wide quarantine would be lifted in 14 days if no new cases were discovered, he added.
