A national holiday and day of remembrance for those lost in the COVID pandemic

Petition Details

I would like the Government to create a national holiday & day of remembrance for all the lives lost in the COVID pandemic. I propose this to be on the 23rd March as this is the date a national lockdown began in the UK.

Additional Information

I lost my father, Christopher Cooper on the 6th December 2020 to Covid Pneumonia. He was a fit and healthy 63 year old, with no underlying medical conditions. This has truly devastated us as a family.

As of 8/01/21 there are 78,508 recorded Covid-related deaths in the UK and 1.9 Million deaths across the world.

The pandemic is still here and taking more lives each day. I feel it is important that as a country we are able to remember all those who have been cruelly taken from us.
