To say 2020 has been a difficult year could certainly be an understatement for many people around the world. Now in July, 7 months into the year, the world is still in the grips of a global pandemic that has been raging since January.

With each month there has been developments and changes to societies around the world, with each of them acting differently and being impacted in different ways and times. How have different nations and places been affected? And how has this changed over the previous months. Below we’ll talk about this in a bit more detail

When the Covid-19 Virus first entered into our society, it took roughly 12 weeks for it to reach 400 thousand cases of confirmed infection. However, over the weekend of 4 - 5 July, 400 thousand new cases around the world were confirmed just over those two days.

In total, there have been 11.4 million positive cases of Covid-19, with over half a million people having died from the virus. While the outbreak has peaked in some areas of the world, it has not in others, and there looks to still be an acceleration of cases around the world - possible indicating that the global peak of the virus is still to come. 

That being said, it does currently look like the amount of deaths from Coronavirus is levelling off globally. Some countries have made gains in lowering the amount of deaths, while in other locations deaths are still increasing.
