Adieu 2020: Impact of COVID19

With the breakouts of world-wide epidemic disease, many governments over the world have stood at a crossroads of choices, either economy or quarantine. In the middle of winter and holidays, a lot of countries recently have seen the highest record of daily covid and the number of deaths. The Korean government also recorded the highest number of daily COVID19 case, 1,237, on 24/12/2020 and the highest deaths, 40, 28/12/2020. To prevent any chance of infection, it is very important to restrict the population movement.
