The staff at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital have produced their own #JerusalemaDanceChallenge video.
The hospital staff, who are all wearing PPE, are seen dancing to the hit song created by Master KG, which has gone international and spawned countless dance video from all over the world.
South Africans loved the video and the fact that it was made by hospital staff who are on the frontlines in the battle with Covid-19.
"Health workers at Steve Biko Academic Hospital join the #JerusalemaDanceChallenge. The mama ululating makes me want to be at a wedding in Limpopo and the fried chicken is highly contested."
The video was well-received and retweeted almost 1 000 times, it did catch the attention of someone who knows a thing or two about the song.
Master KG retweeted the dance video and captioned it:
"This is beautiful."
Here are some reactions from Twitter users to the video:
"Imagine speaking with patients with a deadly contagious disease every day all day. It strains you mentally and emotionally. This is a good initiative, a short escape, remember that there is life, not just disease and death. Yehlisani umoya tu."
"To everyone saying they can't do this during working hours, please be considerate. I was in the hospital a few weeks ago, health workers are overworked and stressed. They change beds, wipe down surfaces, administer medicine, basically everything. They need this break once in a while."
"I feel goosebumps watching this vid because I was in one of those tents a few ago and these angels really need this motivation to de-stress because they work their asses off just to save our lives. I will forever be grateful for what they do."

Seeing Jerusalema bring the world together during a time where not many positives have come is truly inspiring and a proud moment for Mzansi.
Briefly.co.za came across a video that is doing its rounds of Frere Hospital’s #JerusalemaDanceChallenge. Seeing our frontline Covid-19 heroes get involved is special.
Frere Hospital posted the clip to their official Facebook page and the people of Mzansi have been sharing it far and wide. The groove these medical personnel have is a vibe.
In other news, Master KG’s global groove sensation Jerusalema had its music video removed from YouTube and fan were going off their heads. Bring back our pride and glory!
Often videos are removed from YouTube for some legal reason, but there really was no logical explanation for as to why this music video was removed, especially after all the positivity the track has broth to the world during such a glum time.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the music video just randomly disappeared off YouTube and fans did not know what was going on. Social media blew up as fans demanded the music video be put back where it was found.
