Coronavirus – Spain: Victims honored with over 50,000 flags (images)
Central park of the Spanish capital was filled with flags, with residents participating with emotion.
More than 50,000 Spanish flags were “planted” in a park in Madrid on Saturday night, in honor of the victims of the coronavirus.
The park of Rome, as it is called, was filled with a “sea” of red and yellow, from the flags, which were placed in rows and are visible from the central roundabout of the Spanish capital.
It is alleged that the flags were hoisted by members of the coronavirus-affected people. In any case, the flags went under extreme secrecy.
A white sign of the union also entered there, while it is already known for the critical attitude of its members in the management of the pandemic by the government.
The residents accepted with emotion this rare move, honoring the victims of the pandemic themselves.
Spain counts more than 31,000 victims of the coronavirus and has so far managed to stem the second wave of the pandemic.
In this context, the Minister of Health appealed to the local authorities of the country to impose tougher measures, in the face of the escalation of the virus throughout Europe.
On Friday, Madrid increased the measures in some neighborhoods, something that today provoked reactions, with their residents talking about social discrimination.
These are measures to restrict traffic, reduce customers in commercial stores and restaurants, which affect one of the 3.3 million inhabitants of the Spanish capital.
