Nation’s first-ever memorial for COVID-19 victims established in Telangana

Hyderabad: The first-ever memorial for COVID-19 victims has been set up at a village in Telangana. This memorial turned out to be the first such tribute in the nation to those who succumbed to the deadly virus.

On Thursday, the memorial was established at Rajannapet village in Rajanna-Sircilla district by Project Madad. Project Madad is a voluntary association of Indian diaspora specialists.

The memorial is dedicated to all the citizens who lost their lives due to COVID-19 in 2020-2021.

Project Madad supposes that “India cannot afford to forget” the near and dear ones lost in this crisis nor let down the caution against COVID-19, the organization stated in a statement on Friday.

The citizens are additionally required to recognize the bravery of all the frontline workers long after the country has been vaccinated and ensure the ongoing welfare of rural healthcare workers.

Earlier this year, the members of Project Madad had come ahead to provide the first dose of the vaccine to all the village residents. They had also provided enough medical supplies to the clinics in Rajannapet. 

Following this, the District Medical and Health Department administered the second dose of the vaccine to all the recipients. The total population of the village is 2,253, and the number of people above the age of 18 is 1,629.

Telangana recorded 153 cases of Covid-19 from 36,510 test samples on Thursday. The State’s active case tally stands at 3,737, with 160 previously affected people healing from the virus.
