The day the world's confirmed COVID-19 case tally tops two million, we're going to focus on one gent: Captain Tom Moore.
The 99-year-old army veteran wanted to raise £1000 by completing 100 laps of his garden by the end of the month when he turns 100.
He gets out on his walker and completes 10 laps of the 25m garden in Bedfordshire every day.
That goal was later upped to £500,000 but was soon smashed as people across the world jumped on the fundraising bandwagon.
More than 450,000 people from around the world have donated money to his fundraising page since it was set up last week.
Right now the tally is fast closing in on £10 million.
"It [has been] beyond our wildest expectations, no words can express our gratitude to the British public for getting behind Tom," his daughter, Hannah Ingram-Moore, said.
"We are humbled, floored and proud."
It's unclear whether Mr Moore will actually stop when he hits his target. The BBC reported Mr Moore as saying he "hopes to do another 100 laps".
Either way, he'll have a nationwide audience watching that 100th lap as BBC Breakfast will be there for the precious moment tomorrow morning (UK time).
And as Mr Moore's clocking up the laps,confirmed cases of the virus have eclipsed two million, according to Johns Hopkins University, though the real number is no doubt far higher.
The global death toll from coronavirus has passed 132,000 and more than 509,000 people have recovered, the Baltimore-based uni reports.
US President Donald Trump has stopped funding to the World Health Organisation over its handling of the pandemic.
The United States is the biggest overall donor to the WHO, contributing more than $400 million in 2019, roughly 15 per cent of its budget.
President Trump has been anxious to lift stay-at-home orders and business shutdowns in the country but those aspirations continue to meet stiff resistance on the state and local levels.
One of those resistors, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced an executive order requiring people to wear face coverings when social distancing is not possible, including on public transport, in stores and on crowded sidewalks.
