This happens regularly, but now during the corona it is a little bit so hard.

It's difficult for me to answer the similar question accurately. Indeed I can meet many new people over a week, but it can happen that I know nobody during a month.

In my case it is difficult to meet new people because I spend a lot of time in my work and there I don´t have the opportunity to join with others only with my mates. Even though I'll like to join with different groups.

I don't meet people frequently because I don't travel a lot. But sometimes at work I meet poeple.
