China Holds Day of Mourning for Coronavirus Victims
China holds a national day of mourning on Saturday to honor citizens who died in the fight against the coronavirus, as well as patients who died from the disease.
At 10 a.m., people across the country fell silent for three minutes to mourn the coronavirus victims, while cars, trains and ships sounded their horns. Air raid sirens also sounded to honor the dead.
All public entertainment has been suspended for the day. On the internet, many websites and apps adopted a black-and-white look for their front pages. National flags are supposed to fly at half-mast across the country and at all overseas embassies and consulates for the day.
