Statue Looks Like Doctor – level 1

17-04-2020 15:00

Rio de Janeiro is a big city in Brazil. A very famous statue of Christ is there. It is the largest statue in the world. The statue is on top of a mountain.

There is a special show on Easter Sunday evening. The statue looks like a doctor. There are images of Brazil’s health workers on the statue. There are lights. People can also see flags. They can see messages in different languages.

The idea is to show respect to Brazil’s health workers.  Also, there is a message for people. It says that people must stay at home.

There is a religious meeting during the show. The city’s archbishop praises the health workers. Their job is dangerous. They work very hard. They look after people with the coronavirus.

Difficult words: statue (an object from stone or metal that looks like a person or animal), archbishop (the most important person in a church), praise (to say that something is very good).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
