A special edition on the coronavirus pandemic

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 maggio 2020

In most of our editions we lead with a lament for globalisation. World goods trade may shrink by 10-30% this year. Don’t be fooled that the diminished movement of people, goods and capital will make the world more humane or safer. With globalisation in reverse, it will become harder to deal with planet-wide problems, including finding a vaccine and securing an economic recovery.Our Europe edition focuses on the European Union. The pandemic is not just causing an economic crisis there, as it is elsewhere in the world, it is fast creating a political and constitutional crisis, too. Europe’s difficulties are solvable, but the EU’s members cannot agree on what they want, nor on how to bring about reform.Our coverage of the disease this week includes a look at the safety and efficacy of contact-tracing apps, a data-rich analysis setting out the threat of a second wave of infections in well-connected towns and cities and a report on why Africa appears to have escaped lightly—so far. We set out how researchers have found a way to dip into patients’ data to extract information about the disease without compromising their privacy. And we describe how the virus that causes covid-19 might attack colonies of great apes.We also have a mortality tracker, which uses the gap between the total number of people who have died from any cause and the historical average for the time of year to estimate how many deaths from covid-19 the official statistics are failing to pick up. We have been focusing on the pandemic in Economist radio and Economist films, too. This week we released a short film on how the pandemic could change the world’s financial order.
