Has anyone seen these ?
Apparently it was started by a man who wanted his neighbours to know that he was mourning the loss of his wife to the virus.

It might bring it home to people how much of an impact it's having if these were displayed.

In a Facebook post Ms Gompertz said: 'Very sadly our Grandma has passed away after contracting Coronavirus. 'Our Grandad was on the phone this morning and wanted people to understand, not only the number of people who have died due to this virus, but how many people have been affected due to the loss of a family member or friend.' She revealed her grandfather wanted the yellow heart to be a symbol that showed 'how the country is covered with families that have lost somebody and been touched by this pandemic'

We’ve lost four people in recent weeks. Only one was Covid-related but each was as sad as any other death. sad
