Christ the Redeemer flashed with flags of nations affected by the coronavirus pandemic
Christ the Redeemer flashed in flags of countries where coroan virus cases were reported.
The Christ statue in Brazil was illuminated with the flags of the countries affected by the Koroan virus pandemic.
In an act of solidarity, various flags were projected onto the statue in Rio de Janeiro while countries around the world are dealing with the outbreak.
Messages of hope and the hashtag #praytogether in different languages were also projected onto the statue.
Brazil was the most affected country in Latin America with 621 confirmed cases on Thursday.
But in other parts of the world, the number has increased to tens of thousands, and Europe has become the new epicenter of the virus when life in China normalizes again.
On Friday, the death toll in Italy – Europe's most affected country – rose to 3,400, exceeding that in China, while the death toll in Spain rose to 1,000.
There were over 246,000 confirmed cases and 10,000 deaths worldwide on Friday.
Christ the Redeemer, who is 125 feet tall and normally attracts around two million visitors a year, was shut down on Tuesday for the outbreak of the corona virus.
The light show coincided with a mass at the landmark, led by Archbishop Orani João Tempesta, who took the opportunity to ask the faithful to pray for the sick.
