UK families mourn COVID-19 victims at London's wall of hearts

CA, 05 Apr 2021
The United Kingdom may be one of the leading countries in COVID-19 vaccination efforts, but it has also had one of the worst death tolls in this pandemic.

Some families in Britain have now created a moving memorial to honour loved ones who were lost to the virus, by hand-drawing almost 150,000 hearts on a wall opposite Britain's Houses of Parliament.

The mural is expected to stretch for hundreds of metres along the southern bank of the River Thames outside St Thomas’ hospital, where Prime Minister Boris Johnson was put in an intensive care unit after he contracted the virus and fell seriously ill last year.
