Photos that capture the essence of Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic

As the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic spreads around the globe, “people are panicking“ – ignorance and intolerance are causing some to attack Asian people blaming them for the virus, waves of panic buying are leaving the shelves empty across the world, panicked toilet paper hoarders get in physical fights in supermarkets, some are trying to profit from the panic bumping up prices of face masks and hand sanitizers…

These are the photos from all around the world capturing the essence of 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
