Christ the Redeemer Lit Up as Doctor to Honor Medical Staff on Easter Sunday
On Easter Sunday, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janero, Brazil, was illuminated to look like a doctor to honor medical personnel as they face the coronavirus crisis.
The statue was lit up to appear as though Jesus were wearing a white lab coat and a stethoscope. The words for "thank you" in multiple languages—"merci," obrigado," "danke," "grazie"—flashed across the statue, reports CBS News.
The projection then showed multiple medical workers and encouraged people to stay at home.
