A tribute to key workers and those lost to Covid – Mike Padgham – The Guardian

On Tuesday (23.03.21), to mark the anniversary of the first Covid-19 lockdown, we will all stop for a moment to reflect on those we have lost to this dreadful pandemic. Personally, I think of the thousands of people who have died in care settings. Every death is a tragedy, the loss of a loved one – a father, mother, husband, wife, son, daughter, aunt, uncle or friend. Tuesday is also a time to think of and thank all those carers, NHS staff and other key workers who put their lives at risk to care for others. To acknowledge that work, it would be nice if the government could give all health and social care staff in England a bonus, like the £500 payment awarded in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
