City of Chattanooga unveils virtual memorial to honor those who died to Covid-19

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn (WDEF) – The City of Chattanooga has released a memorial video honoring those who lost their lives to Covid-19.

The video release by the city references the 280 Hamilton County deaths that happened in 2020, but the video is for anyone who has lost a loved one to Covid since it arrived in our community. 

In total, Pandemic has claimed the lives of more than 326 residents of Hamilton County. 

The memorial video also includes a tribute to our local health care workers who have spent the last 10 months caring for the people in the Covid-19 ICU. 

Organizers hope this video gives the community an opportunity to honor and grieve their loved ones.

“What we all want to do is come together to help heal. I was reading earlier today some of the memorials that people have already started to leave up on the website. It just meant a lot to me to try to get that experience even though we cannot get close together.”
