In the United States, where the death toll of the new coronavirus is the highest in the world, about 670,000 flags were lined up in the center of Washington, DC, in memory of those who have died so far.

In the United States, the death toll of the new coronavirus is the highest in the world, with more than 672,000 as of 17th of this month, according to a summary by Johns Hopkins University.



In order to commemorate those who have died so far, the area close to two Tokyo Domes (20 acres = 8) was planned by a local artist in the vast green belt "National Mall" in the center of Washington, DC. Approximately 670,000 white flags were lined up in the area (10,000 square meters), named after the number of dead people.



The flag said that people who lost their family and friends could write a message, saying, "If I knew it would be a lifetime farewell, I would have hugged it longer when I last met." ..



A woman looking at the flag said, "It's like a sea of ​​great sorrow. So many people shouldn't have died. I also lost two friends. It's really hard."



In the United States, while the vaccination rate is sluggish, the spread of the highly infectious mutant virus "Delta strain" is becoming more serious, and the number of deaths per day has exceeded 2000 again.
