A Virtual Journey Around the World: Week 7

Almost 2 months in to our trip around UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, and I am constantly amazed at the fascinating insights into the world histories being discovered. From the delicate and ancient remains of marine animals at Chengjiang in China to the overgrown remains of majestic ancient temple cities in Myanmar; and the lush, green rainforests of Sumatra where endangered animals and plants have their home.

Take a little time to reflect on the global fight against Covid-19. As of today, the total number of confirmed cases in the 50 countries visited is 1,039,489 (UN World Health Organisation). All but 2 of these countries have reported cases, and all but 6 at least 1 death. 71,671 people are known to have died in these countries ‘visited’ to date, although even a brief review of the statistics suggests real numbers are distorted due to differential access to testing.
