Pandemics are by nature worldwide events and the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak has seen every country forced to change the lives of its citizens in the battle to beat it.
Graveyards have been busy as the death toll mounts, while many businesses have been mothballed with workers told to stay at home except for essential shopping.
Confined to home, many are having to while away the hours in confinement amid efforts to keep the virus at bay.
