Some of Malaysia’s COVID-19 patients have been practicing their catwalk at a quarantine center.

A video of six men putting up a fashion show in their hospital uniforms and to the tune of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Crazy in Love went up on TikTok yesterday and has since been viewed 600,000 times. 

Titled Quarantine but make it fashun, one of the men at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang even tied his top around his waist for a personal touch. 

“Didn’t expect this would be my boyfriend’s activities while quarantine,” the caption by what appears to be one of their girlfriends @Syhdysra said on TikTok.

The video has since been circulated on other platforms. 

“Bring on MAEPS fashion week,” @Muzeaqim wrote on Twitter.

“Omg keep up the mood happy brain cell chases away covid,” @Znnie chimed in.

The quarantine center in Selangor has been designated for low-risk COVID-19 patients showing mild to no symptoms. They have to stay there for 10 days after testing positive for the coronavirus. 

The MAEPS’ models posted another video yesterday of themselves catwalking between beds to the song Pantun Budi (Poem of Debt) by the late singer SM Salim.
