Empire State Building Beats in Red As Tribute to Coronavirus First Responders

The lights of the iconic Empire State Building in New York City were seen flashing in red at the rhythm of a heartbeat on Saturday night, during the last day of the #HerosShineBright campaign, to thank the first responders involved in fighting the coronavirus pandemic in the US and worldwide.

“I think it’s a great initiative,” said a resident named Andrea Ferreira, who added that “I think it’s beautiful just like to see so many different monuments all around the world with the same colours, and just to give thanks, because we are all really thankful to the first responders. It’s a great initiative.”

Other landmarks around the world have joined the nine-day initiative, which started on April 24th.

According to figures compiled by the Johns Hopkins University, the US remains the worst-hit country with the pandemic worldwide, with more than 1,133,000 confirmed cases have been reported and nearly 66,500 people dying with the virus.

There are nearly 313,000 confirmed cases and more than 24,000 deaths in the state of New York, the worst hit in the country.
