Statue Looks Like Doctor – level 2

17-04-2020 15:00

In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, there is a famous statue of Christ. The statue is a symbol of the city, and on Easter Sunday evening it looked like a doctor. The idea was to show respect to Brazil’s health workers and to remind people to stay at home.

On the statue, there was projection of flags and messages of hope in different languages. There were also pictures of local medical workers who work hard to fight the coronavirus. During the show, there was a religious ceremony near the statue, and the city’s archbishop praised front line medical workers.

This was the second time during the coronavirus sickness when such a show happened. Last month, people could see flags of different countries that had cases of the coronavirus.

Difficult words: projection (when there are images on something, usually on a screen in cinema), archbishop (the head of a church), front line medical workers (people who are the first to make a contact with ill people).

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