Since 2020, close to 2 million Malaysians have been infected with Covid-19, and thus far, more than 15,000 of our family, friends, colleagues and countrymen were taken away from us, far too soon, due to the deadly pandemic.
In memory of our fallen loved ones, a team of non-profit volunteers endeavours to erect an online memorial forever dedicated to the souls who perished during this global calamity.
Officially going live on 16 September 2021, the Covid-19 Memorial Malaysia website or c19memorial.my honours those who lost their battle with coronavirus in Malaysia.
The memorial is publically available and is made up of information collected from news sources, public records, social media channels as well as submissions sent in by those who lost someone to Covid-19.
The site is created and supported by a team of activists, artists, researchers, software developers and even journalists like Malaysiakini’s Aidila Razak – donating their time and expertise to break ground on the project.
Tugu Negara was built to remember 11,000 locals who perished in the world wars and Darurat.— Aidila Razak (@aidilarazak) August 31, 2021
To date, more than 15,000 people have died of Covid-19 in Malaysia. This site is to remember them.
We're collecting submissions for memorials 👇https://t.co/QI2fAa0ZDR@c19memorialmy
c19memorial.my takes inspiration from the Tugu Negara national monument which stands in Kuala Lumpur today – dedicated to the 11,000 people who died during World War I, II and the Malayan Emergency.
The project signifies that those who were lost to the Covid-19 pandemic are more than just numbers on statistics.
Those who have fallen are brothers, sisters, mothers and daughters, sons and fathers, aunts, grandfathers, friends – dearly beloved individuals. This is to remember them, their names, their faces, their lives.c19memorial.my
