The statue of the female medic stands 8ft tall in a sculptor’s studio in West Sussex. She is dressed in full PPE, with only her eyes visible behind a visor and mask, and she is wearily taking off her gloves. It is a defining image of the Covid pandemic, and the subject for a monument planned for central London honouring the efforts of doctors, nurses and other emergency workers.
