What a weird time to be alive, isn't it? Even though the pandemic has brought most of our lives to a standstill, we've seen an explosion of historic events this year—some of which are happening even as you read these words. From the ongoing efforts to bring the coronavirus outbreak under control to nationwide (and international) protests for racial justice to the upcoming Presidential elections that will decide the fate of America, it's hard to keep up with all that's happening in the world right night.

Case in point: these 23 most striking and memorable from just this past week alone:

The crematorium is receiving 20 corpses a day, when before the pandemic received an average of five. Mexican Health Secretary announced the country has over 36,000 victims from COVID-19, surpassing Italy but behind the US, Brazil, and UK. According to Johns Hopkins University, Mexico has registered 311,486 positive cases. Critics say Government started reopening the economy too soon and this would increase the number of victims. At the beginning of the pandemic, President Lopez Obrador had been accused of downplaying the effects of the virus to protect economic activity. (Photo by Hector Vivas/Getty Images)
