South African church caretaker put out white ribbon to remember COVID-19.This is to honour the country’s victims that have died due to the novel Corona virus.
“We feel honoured, because we honour the people who passed away from coronavirus. So I think it means a lot to us and to the people of South Africa,” explained Rhudzani Makuya, a church caretaker.
Every morning, the church’s caretakers walk out from the church with a bucket full of ribbons to tie them to the fence.
“So we wanted a visual representation of that pain and suffering”, said Gavin Lock, the Reverend of St. James Presbyterian Church.
“And to give people a visual reminder that this is something that is real.”
South Africa nears 500,000 confirmed positive cases of the Corona virus.This figure is more than half the coronavirus cases on the African continent.
