I "missed" the other three horsemen of the apocalypse: War, Famine and Death!

Plus, nobody can escape the butterfly effect, as anything that affects the economy also affects everybody in the long run. A lot of people's budgets have been ruined by large numbers of deaths/hospitalizations/quarantinings of total strangers.

I miss those Quentin Quarantining movies too.

Especially "Total Fiction!"

Paok,

I believe that the title of your poll does not properly capture the intent of your poll considering the choices you offer:

I have lost a loved one.
I have been infected.
I lost my job.
Being in quarantine for too long.
I paid a penalty fee.
Lack of social contact.
Missing a movie premier that moved to 2021.
I benefit from the virus.
I have not missed anything, life rules!

Please consider changing the title from:

What is the Most You Missed Due to COVID-19

To:

How Has COVID-19 Affected You?

Also consider changing your introduction and question from:

Due to COVID-19 many people made sacrifices. Others have sufered. What is the most you missed due to COVID-19?

To:
Due to COVID-19 many people made sacrifices. Many others have suffered.  How has the COVID-19 pandemic most affected you?

I wasn't sure what the "penalty fee" option was about. If it's about rules during the pandemic, it could be clarified:

I paid a penalty fee because I broke a COVID-related rule.

#7: 

I stopped traveling.

#8:

movie premiere

Back in January I attended a press event from Brand USA to report on the touristic offers in 2020 in the United States for my website, Viajeros en Ruta

At the end of the event there was a trivia with questions about the United States and among the over 50 reporters at the place, I got first place. My award was a free flight to visit any place in the USA this year.

It was a really great opportunity, and I was planning a trip to Wyoming to visit Yellowstone Park and beighboring communities, then, the virus stroke, and plans went on hold.

Until October, there was a chance for the trip to be moved to 2021, but unfortunately, the sponsor airline refused last month to allow an extension of my ticket for next year since they are already flying.

Since I can't put my health and my family health in risk, I had to forget about the trip, so that was the biggest blow the Pandemic has given me so far.

Oh wow, Pencho, I'm so sorry to hear that! That sounds like it would have been a lovely trip. Congratulations on winning first place, btw, and I hope that you're able to make the trip, albeit without free airfare, some time in the future.

'Good poll (!) and timely, unfortunately. Lack of social contact or losing someone will get my vote. 

May I suggest a few small edits?

Due to COVID-19, many people have made sacrifices.

DIGGER'S CHOICES:

1.)Lack of social contact(EDWARD NORTON, "FIGHT CLUB(1999)");

2.)I'm unable to go anywhere(except perhaps for my appointments to see medical doctors or psychiatric therapists)(MARISA TOMEI, "ONLY YOU(1994)");
&
3.)I've been cooped-up in my home for long enough(Henry Ian Cusick, "LOST(2004-2010)").
