The coronavirus pandemic has lent a surreal quality to the lives of millions of people around the globe.

It has disrupted daily routines, overwhelmed hospitals, shuttered schools and offices and halted many sporting and entertainment events.

If that weren't enough, many are also forced to grapple with fears about the financial toll, from lost jobs and businesses to shrinking retirement accounts.

Among notable people who have been infected are the Canadian prime minister's wife and a Brazilian official who met with President Donald Trump recently.

Meanwhile, actor Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson are recovering from the disease in Australia, saying they are fine but remaining isolated to protect others.
