The pandemic hit the world at the beginning of 2020, eventually infecting nearly every country.
There have been millions of infections around the world with a huge number of deaths. But as well as  infections and loss of family members and families unable to come together, millions of people have lost their jobs or their businesses due to lockdowns.
So almost everybody in the world has been affected by the pandemic.
