An open-air dance party recently took place in a residential area that is closed to prevent the resurgence of COVID-19 in Chengdu, capital of southwest China’s Sichuan Province, as people in protective clothing white protection were seen dancing enthusiastically to the beat.
In the video posted online, volunteers dressed in white protective suits waved colorful light sticks in the air and wore rabbit ear ornaments on their heads. They sang songs with the residents and did disco dancing.
“The concert lasted over an hour. The property management company prepared moving headlights and audio equipment on site and set up the flash layout of ‘Chengdu, Cheers!’ on the ground, ”a resident named Zhuo told media.
“It helps a lot to release the anxiety brought by the epidemic. Although we are stuck at home, we can still have fun,” Zhuo said.
Likewise, more than 200 students at Dalian University of Technology, which is also stranded due to recent cluster infections in northeast China’s Liaoning Province, hold dance parties every night on the campus.
