    I was inspired to look this up from an idea of the WW1 moral thread.


    How will America memorialize the victims of COVID-19? Two stone benches and a granite memorial placed in the middle of a Jewish cemetery outside Boston provide one possible answer. In Boston, a memorial rises to COVID-19 victims and ‘last responders’

    Hardly Any 1918 Flu Memorials Exist. Will We Remember COVID-19 Differently? Thousands of American flags were planted on the National Mall this September as the COVID-19 death toll in the U.S. surpassed 200,000 cases. Volunteers who organized the installation in Washington, D.C., hoped that the flags could symbolize the increasingly unfathomable scale of loss that the coronavirus pandemic has caused.

    Leading London mayor candidates signal support for permanent Covid memorial Mr Bailey, who supports a memorial in central London, added: “It is our duty to remember those who tragically lost their lives — and those who fought to protect many more.”

    I wonder how and where they'd have the COVID memorial(s).

    They're talking about it now.

    Don't shoot the messenger.

    Nice idea. 15% pay rise to nurses is also a good idea.

    Why only nurses? There are other health care workers who are not nurses who risk just as much if not more in cases.

    I agree. The nurses/15% thing was an issue recently, hence my reference. A britocentric thing.
