The religious celebration closely linked to health professionals cannot be celebrated in its usual manner this year due to the severe blow caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Dressed in masks, gloves and protective equipment, the workers solemnly marched through one of the hospital corridors, according to a video shown on social media.



The participants carry homemade banners in which the names and coats of arms of some of the religious brotherhoods of Malaga can be read, such as the Cristo de Mena, El Rocío or La Esperanza.

Walking in silence, they precede a singular throne made out of one of the trolleys that are usually used to transport medical instruments on which they push a miniature Christ.

The recording, only lasting 30 seconds, records the procession with which, according to hospital sources, the staff of the centre wanted to celebrate such an important holiday that holds traditional ties to health professionals.

We must remember that one of the most solemn and expected moments of Semana de Pasión is the transfer of the statue of Jesús Cautivo, the Señor de Málaga, to the Hospital Civil to visit the sick.
