2020 the Year of Corona

It’s been a year since the World Health Organization (WHO) first picked up information on a “viral pneumonia” from Chinese authorities in Wuhan.

That pneumonia of unknown origin would in just a few short months cause the worst pandemic the world has seen in a century.

Just over a century, after the Spanish flu, this time not only Europe was taken by a mysterious ‘flu’.

A year on, COVID-19 has killed at least 1.7 million people, infecting over 80.8 million. It devastated European hospitals and forced many countries to heavily restrict people’s movements.

Although the virus had been circulating earlier than that fateful December 31 date, the discovery of cases of this virus would set into motion the defining event of 2020, which has impacted all of our lives.

In 2021 the disease was going to take the world under its spell.
