Empire State Building’s Eerie Tribute to First Responders Leaves People Terrified

Share on Facebook

Our country is now one of the world’s worst-affected countries from the coronavirus.

The number of deaths has risen rapidly over the last few weeks and its safe to say that we are living in a crisis.

New York City’s most iconic landmark, the Empire State Building, made a tribute to all of the first responders and emergency workers yesterday but it wasn’t well-received… at all.

This also includes 3,178 known deaths – the highest number of deaths in one country.

And without a doubt, we have become the hardest hit as of last week.  

Trump has repeatedly expressed how eager he is to lift lockdowns within weeks, despite warnings from experts and doctors that if the nation returns to work, COVID-19 cases could spike once again.

So much so, that last week, those who have been in New York, specifically, the New York metro area, are being asked to quarantine for fourteen days.

And 1,342 deaths – most of which have occurred in New York City.

Dr. Craig Smith, chair of the department of surgery at Columbia University Irving Medical Center in New York City, explained, “We have not exhausted our existing supply of ventilators but if we keep doubling every three days, we might.”

She said that those locations were showing a “more rapid increase” of spread.

This is certainly a worrying time for all us in America and across the globe.

But clearly, some people just don’t realize the severity of the pandemic.

And, quite frankly, it has painted a terribly embarrassing picture of our country as a whole.

And if this doesn’t teach the youngsters how serious this pandemic is, we honestly don’t know what will.

Everyone working in healthcare has been affected by the pandemic…

And first responders and emergency service workers have been working around the clock in a desperate bid to help keep the numbers at bay.

But we can at least try through some public tributes!

A very public tribute was made last night in the heart of New York City.

The Empire State Building was magnificently lit up to say thank you to the first responders and the emergency service workers.

And it certainly didn’t fail to do this!

A giant flashing siren overlooking the entire city isn’t exactly the most peaceful of atmospheres… is it?

And even though some people saw a humorous side to it, the vast majority didn’t.

It is pretty haunting to see a giant red siren flashing over the entire city.

They are simply taking it in their stride and making some light-hearted fun over it on Twitter.
