In a last-ditch effort to slow down the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus, countries and major cities all over the world have gone into full lockdown.

COVID-19 has been spreading at an alarming rate...

And, currently, there are 724,592 confirmed cases globally. A further 34,017 have tragically died from the virus.

Self-isolation has now been deemed as the most effective way of combating the virus.

While medical researchers work tirelessly to find a vaccine, regular people have been urged to avoid any form of social interaction and contact as best they can.

The virus is spread notoriously easily...

Person-to-person contact is thought to be the main method of transmission for the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - Through sneezing and coughing, primarily.

So remaining isolated is the safest option for many.

And millions are now quarantining themselves at home for months at a time.

However, many have been forced to temporarily leave their jobs amid the health crisis...

And have no option but to sit in their homes and think of ways to stay entertained.

Many are struggling with being cooped up in the house for so long...
