A petition to honour health workers in Malta and Gozo is currently making the rounds on Facebook.
The note reads: “Let us all go out on our balconies and terraces on Tuesday 17th March at 9 pm to give a big round of applause to our doctors, nurses and paramedics. Let us ensure that this applause is loud and clear as a sign of appreciation for the valuable work they do with such courage and decication.
We are going to give them a standing ovation all over Malta and Gozo to thank these heroes who are working during these difficult times to encourage them to go on with their work.
We are relying on you to pass the word on; the more it is, the more people will get involved.”
Will you be taking part in this standing ovation?
