The streets have remained deserted and security has been tightened in many parts of the world to maintain COVID-19 logs during the New Year 2021 celebrations.
People all over the world are greeting the new year. As they said goodbye to 2020, many breathed a sigh of relief at the end of a devastating year over the coronavirus pandemic. More than 1. 7 million people have died worldwide and 82 million were infected with COVID-19 in 2020.
The 2021 New Year celebrations remain subdued around the world as fears of the pandemic persist. Despite the start of vaccination campaigns against COVID-19 in some countries, the new strain of coronavirus kept many indoors. Governments also directed citizens to celebrate the New Year at home with loved ones.
