In a room inside a hillside Taoist monastery in China's Shandong province lies a collection of 558 memorial tablets inscribed with the names and hometowns of people who died after contracting the coronavirus or while battling the pandemic.
Some of them, like Li Wenliang, are household names in China. Others, like Liu Hewei, are not.
Liang, who has a following of three million people on China's Twitter-like Weibo, does get help from young people who have joined him over the years, including Deng Shiquan, a 28-year-old former restaurant worker who is now a priest.
"The hardest thing is to keep going," Liang said.
"We maintain them (the tablets) every day. Then we wait to see if, once this disaster has finished, will people still remember them? It is this which is the biggest hurdle."
