Brazilian artist dedicates mural to virus healthcare workers

A graffiti artist has dedicated a mural in Rio de Janeiro to health workers taking care of patients and fighting against coronavirus in Brazil.

Angelo Campos lost his grandmother and his uncle after they were both diagnosed with Covid-19, the disease caused by the virus.

"One of the reasons why I decided to start this panel was that inside my own house I used to hear that this (Covid-19) was nothing, a silly thing," Campos said.

His grandmother Aurita Gomes Silva was 85 years old; she was admitted to hospital due to the virus and died three days later.

Her son Gustavo Gomes Campos, 55, died on the day she was buried.
