Vienna Museum gathers pandemic-related artefacts

Vienna museum of city history appealed to submit artefacts of everyday objects to to document coronavirus pandemic for future generations. Some 1,800 photos of masks, signs and other objects have been received since the launch of appeal, spokeswoman Konstanze Schaefer said. She added that they want to see how they tell their children, or their children’s’ children about what happened in Vienna.

Some 200 photos of submissions received have been put up on the museum’s website. They include a photo of a discarded blue rubber glove, a police signboard that urges one-metre social distancing and a mobile phone screen showing a call with the coronavirus hotline number of more than one hour and 28 minutes.
