In the video, the volunteers in full Red Cross uniform and face masks can be seen performing the choreographed dance in the courtyard of the hospital.

Regional politician Mario Conca shared the clip with the message: “A touching flashmob done at the hospital to give peace to our children in the recovery process, to their relatives and hospital staff, and also to all of us”.
