On the 19th of August 2020, a video of a family went viral all over social media. In the video, eight members of a family were seen rejoicing over their COVID recovery.
The eight family members, including women and children, were seen dancing to the song ‘Chinta karke kya payega, marne se pehle mar jayega‘ from Bollywood film ‘Chhichhore’, after being discharged from the hospital.
The news comes from Madhya Pradesh’s Katni District Hospital where civil surgeon Dr. Yashwant Verma on the 18th of August said that 19 members
of the family were admitted to the isolation ward of the medical facility after they tested positive for coronavirus on the 8th of August 2020.
The family was discharged on the 15th of August 2020 after all of the members tested negative for the novel coronavirus, he said. Some of the
members of the same family, who were staying together in the isolation ward, celebrated by dancing after they tested negative, the doctor concluded.
