Grief and mourning during the coronavirus pandemic | COVID-19 Special

Some 660,000 people have died so far from Covid-19, according to official statistics. They have died alone, and their loved ones have mourned in isolation.

And thousands have been buried in mass graves. The coronavirus was unexpected and fast – changing our lives and the world. How do you grieve when bedside visits and funerals are banned?
