Notable Events[edit | edit source]

In 2020, a pandemic called Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), also known as the Wuhan virus, Chinese flu, or just Coronavirus began sweeping across the Earth, originating in the Wuhan province in China before spreading to many other countries, most notably Italy and Iran. Due to the high risk of death from those of advanced age and those with other health problems, many changes have had to take place since the seriousness of the pandemic first became apparent in March, with many sports matches and tournaments being either cancelled or postponed, with most Football leagues (including the European 2020 Championship), many Formula 1 races and the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games among those affected. Many conferences have also been postponed, most notably GDC 2020 and E3 2020.
