2020 is considered a “tragic” year, especially since many worldwide have lost their lives and the lives of their loved ones due to the Coronavirus, which has killed more than 300 million people since the outbreak of the disease was reported in China at the end of December.
Unprecedented deaths, closures and losses
The pandemic caused a general closure that had not been witnessed by the planet’s inhabitants for centuries, and many lost their jobs. The aviation sector was paralyzed as a result of the travel ban, causing “unprecedented” losses.
It also forced school students to study remotely, and residents of most countries committed to staying at home for months. The most famous cities in the world became “ghost cities” due to the isolation and quarantine imposed by governments to prevent the spread of Covid 19.
On the other hand, the demand for the site owned by “Google” company increased, and the number of subscribers also increased due to staying at home.
The new Coronavirus has killed 1,305,039 people in the world since the outbreak was reported in China at the end of December, according to a census conducted by Agence France-Presse based on official sources on Saturday at 11:00 GMT.
More than 53 million infections around the world
More than 53,438,640 people worldwide have been infected with the emerging coronavirus, of whom at least 34,324,500 have recovered to date.
This toll was prepared based on data collected by Agence France-Presse offices from the competent national authorities and on information published by the World Health Organization.
These numbers only reflect a part of the actual number of injuries, as several countries do not conduct tests except for the most serious cases. In contrast, other countries give priority to conducting tests to track contacts of the injured, in addition to the limited testing capabilities of many emerging countries.
