'Thank You': Drones Light up Madrid Sky to Pay Tribute to Covid-19 Victims

Madrid city hall lit up the skies with drones on Friday (June 27) as a tribute for COVID-19 victims and for those who have fought the virus in Spain.

Forty programmed drones with multi-coloured LED lights shone over Madrid creating different forms including a heart and two people, messages of 'hope' and 'thank you' and flags of other countries fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

The location of the performance remained a secret until it took place to avoid crowds and a large gathering, Madrid local government said.

Spain has been one of the worst-hit countries from COVID-19, with more than 28,000 deaths officially reported and nearly 250,000 cases of the virus so far.

Videos and photos from the event soon viral on social media platforms.
