Coronavirus and solidarity: world famous monuments light up supporting Italy!

Last week Italy reported the international record of new deaths from the new coronavirus despite government efforts to stem the  pandemic’s spread.

The Mediterranean country’s daily death rate is now higher than that officially reported by China at the peak of its outbreak around Wuhan’s Hubei province. Italy approved 25 billion euros ($28 billion) of spending measures to help the fragile economy survive the onslaught of coronavirus.

Many buildings and symbols have lit up in solidarity with the Italian population, who is facing incredible losses and difficulties facing COVID-19, together with countries all over the world.

For example, last week Burj Khalifa shined with the colours of the Italian flag and the words “We are with you”, as a sign of solidarity and friendship with Italy in the common challenge to overcome the coronavirus.

But solidarity with Italy has crossed many other international borders!

Now more than ever we are united in this common cause, committed to facing this challenge together.

Here are some images of the monuments around the world with the Italian flag!
