The planet celebrates a New Year under the sign of the coronavirus


IN IMAGES, IN PICTURES – #Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the transition to the year 2021 has been celebrated in many countries around the world.

The planet began #Thursday to turn the page of the year 2020 marked by the coronavirus pandemic which forces billions of people to celebrate in privacy and at home the passage to the #New #Year. #Broken to months of restrictions or even confinement due to #Covid-19, which killed at least 1.7 million people worldwide, most residents had to follow the celebrations from their sofa. #Le #Figaro has selected the highlights of this transition to the year 2021 around the world.
