About This Initiative

The Covid-19 Memorial Malaysia website is a not-for-profit volunteer-run online memorial, for the sole purpose of remembering those who have lost their battles to Covid-19 in the country. In Kuala Lumpur stands the Tugu Negara – the National Monument – dedicated to remembering the 11,000 people who died during World War I, World War II, and the 12-year Malayan Emergency. Since Covid-19 hit Malaysian shores on January 24, 2020, more than 21,000 people have died after being infected by the virus.

They are not just numbers. Those who have fallen are brothers, sisters, mothers and daughters, sons and fathers, aunts, grandfathers, friends – dearly beloved individuals. This is to remember them, their names, their faces, their lives. Information published here is collated from the public domain (through news articles and public social media posts), and through submissions and testimonials from the public.
