Closed petition Commission & fund a National Pandemic Memorial, Institute & annual commemoration
To commission a National Pandemic Memorial and Institute to mark the loss of over 200,000 citizens to the 1918 flu pandemic, and the growing losses to Covid-19. The Institute would inform about past pandemics, and research future pandemics so that losses are minimised.
We are experiencing a devastating event in our national life with Covid-19. The UK suffered an even more devastating event in 1918-19, but the loss of over 200,000 citizens has no national memorial. We need to both commemorate annually, and educate so that we and future generations are better prepared and minimise the impact on our national life.
