The four nurses are not identified and there is no indication of where they are or that the body they are carrying is real.

 The video has drawn harsh criticism, as well as some support for the nurses by some suggesting the dead patient in the footage is the coronavirus and that the frontline healthcare workers had beat the disease. The nurses are pictured finishing their dance down a hallway 

The footage also appears similar to a dancing Ghanian pallbearers meme, being used as a morbid, but tongue-and-cheek reminder for people to stay home during the outbreak. 

It is not clear whether the nurses intended to do the video in the spirit of the pallbearers. 

So far, there have been 1,097,209 confirmed cases in he US of the coronavirus, which has been blamed for 63,836 deaths. 

Among the critics who said they couldn’t ‘stomach’ the footage was YouTuber Blaire White.

‘The dancing was one thing. I stomached it and told myself they need to blow off steam. This??? This is gross,’ said White, who goes by the handle @MsBlaireWhite and has 307,000 followers.

Twitter user Brian Holan tweeted that he had served in the military, and could appreciate ‘gallows humor, when it comes to working in difficult conditions.’

‘However, they have to realize that the average person sees it differently. If you are going to do this kind of humor fine, just keep it to yourselves,’ wrote Holan, who goes by the handle @brian_holan.

A Twitter user known as NJP called the video ‘tasteless’.

‘A little down time is a chat or a laugh with your colleagues on your breaks, not choreographing juvenile dances when people are dying in the same building. It’s tasteless,’ wrote the Twitter user who goes by the handle @fish_nicola.

Twitter user Lion Cub, who has worked in emergency rooms, agreed with the criticisms.
