Nations all over the world have been put on lockdown due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, officially known as COVID-19.

In December 2019, China informed the World Health Organisation (WHO) about an outbreak of a yet unknown pneumonia in the city of Wuhan in the central province of Hubei.

Almost 600,000 people have been infected in 199 countries worldwide, and over 27,000 have died.
