Because the Corona pandemic has now reached all the countries of the world and is impacting the lives of the majority of the world’s population, we, two students of Cusanus University, are interested in learning about people in other places of the world beyond what the media has covered.

With this goal in mind, we want to ask people from different regions of the world to offer their own interpretations, their own narratives of the current situation.
