It’s a sight you don’t get to see every day. In the midst of the gloom and doom over coronavirus cases that have rocked not just China but other countries also, one gets to see some unusual happenings.

In a makeshift hospital in Wuhan, patients and doctors are seen making strange movements with their arms and legs, in slow motion of course.

They are practising the martial arts therapy of Tai Chi. A video has been circulated to this effect.

Taichi-2-750 Doctors and patients strike a pose during their training of Tai Chi.

The hands of the doctors and patients sway gracefully, even as they strike martial arts poses, shifting focus from the right leg to the left and vice versa.

The therapy is believed to be beneficial to health. It helps check anxiety levels and increases energy.
