Hearts painted on Britain’s National COVID-19 Memorial Wall to remember victims

The National COVID-19 Memorial Wall, located opposite the Houses of Parliament and stretching for hundreds of metres along the southern bank of the River Thames outside St Thomas' Hospital, has taken over a week to complete. Over 126,000 Britons have died of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, and current projections predict there will be another 20 to 30,000 more before the pandemic is fully managed.
