With this blog post, we want to give people from around the world and from different backgrounds the opportunity to tell their personal stories in times of the Corona pandemic. Philip Engelholm lives in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. For him, the Corona pandemic has had a major personal impact, as wedding plans have been shaken up for him and his fiancée.

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. The blog posts are displayed in alphabetical order of regions, countries and cities. Note: The information provided here represents the individual opinions and individual experiences of those persons interviewed.
