Behind the statistics and whatever the cause, every death has been devastating for the people left behind.
Join the nation, spearheaded by Marie Curie, on Tuesday 23 March, the first anniversary of the first UK lockdown, for a National Day of Reflection to reflect on our collective loss, support those who've been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future. There will be a minute’s silence at midday, and we are encouraged to light up our doorsteps in the evening.
There are still tough times ahead, as the death toll continues to rise. This annual day will give us all time to pause and think about this unprecedented loss we're facing, and support each other through grief in the years to come.
