Two years into the pandemic, ABC News will present 24 Months That Changed the World. The one-hour primetime special, anchored by Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts, explores how COVID-19 disrupted and created lasting change across all aspects of human life.

What’s Happening:

  • On the cusp of the disease claiming 1 million lives in the United States and with over 6 million lives lost globally, the special reports on the victims and their families, how the pandemic intensified a mental health crisis among young people and stories of resilience and hope.
  • The program explores COVID-19’s impact on industries such as healthcare, with the development of a vaccine in record time and the rise of telehealth; business, with the wave of American workers quitting their jobs as part of the “The Great Resignation” and the explosion of small businesses; and entertainment.
  • The special also takes a look at individuals who made big life choices and moved to new locations, the increase in multigenerational households, those who found love in lockdown and marriages that ended in divorce.
  • It features reporting by chief medical correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton, senior national affairs correspondent Deborah Roberts, chief business, technology and economics correspondent Rebecca Jarvis and contributor Chris Connelly.
  • 24 Months That Changed the World airs on a special edition of 20/20 next Wednesday, March 30th (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC, streaming the next day on Hulu.
