COVID-19 is a global pandemic, affecting all parts of the world and all parts of society and significantly affecting the way we live and interact with each other. It has caused unprecedented costs to the NHS, public health, social care and the national economy. Everyone, from all walks of life, has been affected by the pandemic.
