At the end of 2019, a new coronavirus appeared in China in the province of Wuhan, precipitating the emergence of cases of diseases called COVID-19. This disease quickly spread to other countries of the world. Most countries have estimated that the best strategy to combat COVID-19 is to prevent the transmission of the virus by social distancing. To make it easier to track the mobility of people in 135 countries around the world, in 2020 Google began publishing data on global mobility on a daily basis through a report called "Community Mobility Reports". This report provides a percentage change in activity at the six grouped locations compared to that in the reference days prior to the advent of pandemic COVID-19. In this paper, we study the dynamics of human mobility during the COVID-19 pandemic in 18 countries around the world starting from February 15, 2020 until March 9, 2021. We graphically presented the obtained data, then statistically processed them and presented them in several tables. We believe that the data we have obtained in this paper can be used for many other researches in various spheres of human life and work.
