Countries around the world imposed lockdowns and curfews, and asked people to self-isolate or practise social distancing to try to control the spread of the virus.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Friday that the federal government is offering $14 billion to the provinces and territories to help them re-open from COVID-19.
The financial aid includes funding for personal protective equipment, municipalities, paid sick leave and childcare.
