South Africa: Ribbons to remember COVID-19 victims

A South African church is honouring the country s coronavirus victims by putting out white ribbons to mark each and every death from the disease. The fence outside St. James Presbyterian church in Johannesburg is a stark reminder of the suffering caused by the pandemic in South Africa. 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. The fence has turned into a wall of white satin. Each ribbon represents one the almost 8,000 people killed by the virus so far. 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. More than half the coronavirus cases on the African continent, over five hundred thousands, are in South Africa.
