COVID-19 surged worldwide in 2020 with confirmed cases reaching over 80 million. At the end of 2020, many parts of the world had called off or scaled back their New Year’s Eve events. For example, Japan canceled its New Year’s Eve countdown in Shibuya, Tokyo; South Korea canceled for the first time in 67 years its Bosingak bell-ringing ceremony in Gwanghwamun, Seoul; and the United States hosted its first virtual Times Square NYE countdown in 114 years. Of the eight famous attractions around the world hosting 2020-21 New Year Eve events, only the Sydney Opera House, Taipei 101 and Burj Khalifa Tower saw large-scale fireworks displays, while only people in Taiwan were fortunate enough to organize and gather for New Year’s Eve activities as usual.
