The grieving families of the UK created a Covid mural to honour the lives of their loved ones, lost to Covid-19.
The memorial wall has several hearts hand-painted representing each life lost to the virus. The heart is a symbol of showing love to the fallen heroes.
Story behind the Covid mural :
The wall is made on the south bank of the River Thames, near the house of parliament in London to ingrain the love of lost lives in the parliamentarians.
The monument constructed near the River of Thames signifies the importance of human life and the lesson that need to be learned by governing bodies.
The grieving families starting making this Covid mural back in March which is now further extended to 500 meters.
“We have positioned it at the heart of our capital so that the government never loses eye of the personal anecdotes at the essence of all this.” stance quoted by bereaved families.
More than 200 MOs and two mayors of london want to make the wall a permanent national landmark.
MPs, Ministers, Labor part leader and Democratic leader collectively wrote a letter to PM Boris Johnson asking, to preserve the wall and make it a national landmark.
The purpose of the letter includes the proposal to preserving the hand-painted wall of love behind a screen or lacquer.
This move by the authorities was welcomed as a “heartwarming” gesture, the act of zeal and passion.
A commission will be made to make such memorials in other cities as well to honour the victims of covid, frontline workers and vaccine scientists.
Birmingham City has plans to make a series of memorial parks where victims name will be carved on pebble beds and trees will be planted 2 meters apart to acknowledge social distancing.
“The traditional methods of bereavement have been hit by the pandemic so having a public space to come together and endure what we have felt in isolation is influential,” Mayor of London, Sadiq khan
