Essential health workers have been hard at work for just under a year, dedicating their time, energy and mental capacity to the fight against COVID-19. While they are often praised as a whole, it is rare that individual workers are heartily thanked for their unwavering efforts.

An employee of the N1 City Hospital took the time to thank his co-workers for their hard work in a humorous and unique manner by comparing them to different superheroes.

The video features Afrikaans band, Eden’s songĀ  ‘Superhero‘, and images comparing each staff at the hospital to a hero are edited over the track.

The comments on the post were filled by social media users congratulating the employee on such a heartfelt and positive video:

“All the medical staff are definitely heroes as well as angels. Supermen, superwoman, batmen, batwomen. Brilliant video. It will definitely lift the spirits of these incredibly brave and dedicated people. I salute all of you. May God bless and keep you safe,” one social media user said.

“Fantastic!” commented another.

“Keep the Faith… AWESOME,” another said.
