DETROIT (WXYZ) — General Motors lit the Renaissance Center up Tuesday evening to honor those who died from the coronavirus. The automotive company joined the national COVID-19 memorial held by the Biden administration.

“COVID-19 has turned our world upside down and we, together with our nation, mourn all of the lives it has taken," said Mary Barra, General Motors Chairman and CEO. "As we continue to fight this global pandemic, we must remind ourselves that we can and will come out stronger on the other end.”
