Employees of the Franciscus Gasthuis receive roses in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 19 March 2020. Reportedly the flowers would normally be sent to Rome as decoration for the ‘Urbi et orbi’ blessing and Easter masses.

The Dutch rose grower has now donated the flowers to hospitals as it is expected that the religious events are taking place without the public due to the Corona virus.
