The Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020
This hard-hitting and somber chronicle looks at how ordinary people from different walks of life were affected living in the pandemic, how they dealt with something so devastating yet so unknown and unfamiliar, as well as with the drastic changes in their lives. The journal starts at the first appearance of the deadly coronavirus in Wuhan, China, then follows its spread to America and throughout the world. Several ongoing threads are revisited over the year, made up of different people, science, politics, and the devastation of the American economy. The journal ends with the U.S. presidential election of 2020. Despite the seriousness of the subject, the overriding message is that we intend to survive and defeat this common enemy-COVID-19.
