As the UK government urged that all Britons should avoid non-essential travel abroad in order to combat the Coronavirus pandemic in Britain and when physical contact is discouraged, a
meask-wearing visitor walks beneath the statue entitled The Meeting Place by British artist Paul Day, on 17th March 2020, in London, England. The Meeting Place is a 9-metre high, 20-tonne bronze statue that stands at the south end of the upper level of St Pancras evoking the romance of travel through the depiction of a couple locked in an amorous embrace. Its cost is reported to be £1 million. St. Pancras is the London terminus for Eurostar services to mainland Europe.
