In January 2020, Europe recorded the first known case of COVID-19, also known as the novel coronavirus. The virus, which can cause a severe cough, fever, and respiratory problems, emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and quickly spread around the world, killing thousands. As the virus spreads, European governments have implemented social-distancing measures and an unprecedented lock-down, requiring residents to stay inside. With the fear of continual spread, an economic downturn, and an uncertain future, COVID-19 has incited both worry and solidarity among Europeans.
