As a reminder for the long months of hard work under strict sanitary conditions. Healthcare workers of the Iris Sud hospital in Ixelles have been honored to see a giant Thank You mural painted right next door from the hospital. This tribute is an initiative of a collective of artists, supported by the municipality and various sponsors.

The 10-meter-high mural, required over 100 hours of work and 3 weeks of preparation for the artist collective CosMotion, FarmProd lead by the graffiti artist Amandine Lesay. It represents the different trades that make up the staff. Caregivers are portrayed as heroes, men and women of society who bravely donned their work clothes to save lives amid the coronavirus epidemic.

Balloons were also painted on the side of the building in reference to a real balloon release made a week earlier as a tribute to a nurse who had died treating patients with COVID-19.
