Madrid Offers Daily Moment of Silence for Coronavirus Victims

The city of Madrid has continued honoring victims of the coronavirus with a daily minute of silence at noon, captured in this video on April 29.

This video shows a deserted Puerta del Sol plaza as seen from the upper floors of Hotel Europa. Spanish officials stand in front of the Palacio de Correos beneath the flags of Madrid, Spain, and Europe.

The moment of contemplation – when tolling bells are followed by Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings played over loudspeakers – was first held on March 30.

As of April 29, Spain had reported 236,899 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 24,275 deaths. Credit: Hotel Europa via Storyful
