In honour of all medical and front line staff, UKeMED thanks you all
We at UKeMED thank ALL medical and front line staff around the globe, for their tiresome service and dedication to beat COVID-19.
Windsor Castle, the residence of Queen Elizabeth, was bathed in a brilliant blue light on Saturday 4th July 2020 for the 72nd anniversary of the U.K.’s National Health Service.
“We join together in a moment of remembrance and reflection for those who have lost their lives during the pandemic and pay tribute to the healthcare professionals, keyworkers and volunteers working for and in support of the NHS,” read the royal family’s Instagram post under a photo of the lit castle. This is the second time the Queen has lit up the castle in blue. The other time was at the beginning of April.
“2020 has been the most challenging year in NHS history...” the NHS wrote on its website. “Over the last few months staff have worked around the clock to tackle coronavirus – caring for the 100,000 patients with COVID-19 who needed specialist hospital treatment and treating countless others besides, redesigning services and creating backup Nightingale hospitals.” The organization asked people to place a light in their windows for “this collective act of remembrance.”
