The Governor of St. Petersburg, Alexander Beglov, promised to establish a memorial in the Northern capital of the Russian Federation dedicated to doctors who died from coronavirus during a pandemic. This gesture will perpetuate the memory of people who have not spared their lives in the fight against COVID-19.

The St. Petersburg administration will find money for the construction of the monument. The official monument will replace the spontaneous one created by the inhabitants of the metropolis on Malaya Morskaya Street. The fence will be removed only after the installation of a new memorial. The government of the northern capital of Russia is looking for a new site for the construction of the monument, since the current one is not suitable for these purposes. Currently, negotiations are underway related to the implementation of the project. Representatives of the St. Petersburg authorities are discussing this issue with entrepreneurs. It is assumed that businessmen will cover the costs of erecting the monument.
The wall on Malaya Morskaya will not be removed until plaques with the names of the doctors who died in the pandemic are installed. According to Beglov, the fence is not the best place to perpetuate the memory of doctors.
