Uptown Congressman Proposes NYC Memorial To Coronavirus Victims

NEW YORK, NY — Upper Manhattan's representative in congress is introducing a bill to establish a national coronavirus memorial in New York City to commemorate those lost to the deadly virus.

Adriano Espaillat — whose district includes Harlem, Washington Heights and parts of the Bronx — penned legislation called the "COVID-19 National Memorial Act" that will create a commission to "plan, design and raise funds" for the memorial.

A national memorial could help unite the country around a shared struggle against the deadly virus and by honoring the medical professionals who were on the front lines of the fight against the pandemic, Espaillat said.
