This report looks at the impact of COVID-19 around the globe. A year after it was first detected in Wuhan, China, the world struggles to get the disease under control and cases continue to increase. Europe has been hard hit in the second wave, with many countries imposing further restrictions on their citizens. Due to its sheer population, India is seeing massive infection numbers, but in fact cases are declining there. Meanwhile Russia, which has also seen large infection numbers, is counting on its Sputnik-V vaccine to turn the tide.
