The doctors and health workers are the only hope for the world right now as the world faces an invisible danger, while the scientists are racing against time to make a breakthrough to create a vaccine for the contagious virus.

The six pallbearers carrying a coffin and dancing, know as Ghana coffin dance, has lately become a popular meme template.

In Ghana, it is believed that dancing with the coffin at the funeral brings joy to the soul of the deceased.
