Two hospitals located to the east of London have created giant Tree of Life murals in a bid to raise the morale of patients and staff. Each bee in the murals is designed to represent a patient who has recovered from COVID-19.

"Things are actually getting better -- all the bees on the wall are dedicated for patients we have treated successfully. The mural is in my hospital's main corridor," explained consultant radiologist Dr. Urszula Wegner, who snapped this photo for AuntMinnieEurope.com at King George Hospital. "For me, it is quite busy now, as I see many patients each day in the breast unit."

King George is a National Health Service (NHS) hospital located in the London Borough of Redbridge, and it is part of Barking, Havering, and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust.

The same Tree of Life picture also graces the ground floor wall of Queen's Hospital Romford, which is part of the same NHS Trust, according to an article posted in the Evening Standard newspaper.
