Remembering The Departed

The Covid-19 pandemic has claimed over 22,000 lives to date, but the restrictions on social gatherings have disrupted grieving rituals for many Malaysians. A group of volunteers has initiated an online memorial as a way to remember the departed, which began with a tweet by journalist Aidila Razak. We speak to two volunteers behind the Covid-19 Memorial Malaysia on the project's aims, as well as the challenges of reporting on loss during the pandemic.
