There are untold stories behind each name. This project was created so all have a space to be honored
Let this stand as the living document of the global losses to Covid-19
The names here are represented across all countries. It defied all borders in its wake.
818,208 lives were lost by 08/25/2020
6.2 Million lost as of 04/16/2022
In the absence of any single day of mourning, or global pause to honor the lives lost, this is an attempt to fill that gap in our collective consciousness. No one has anywhere collectively to take their grief, honor their loved ones or feel anchored while adrift in a number that continues to grow daily.
We decided that it was too great a loss to continue being merely a tally on a screen.
Each number represents a life, loves, family and untold friends left behind.
Behind each number is a name and so the meticulous process of cataloguing those names has begun.
We hope that you will amplify this message and tell others about the project.
