Budapest’s iconic Chain Bridge has been illuminated with white light since Friday as a show of appreciation for healthcare workers’ efforts to combat the novel coronavirus pandemic, Mayor Gergely Karácsony said in a video on Facebook on Saturday.

The “small gesture” reflects the colour of doctors’ and nurses’ gowns, Karácsony said. White also shows the “chance for a new beginning”, he added.
