A special edition on the coronavirus pandemic

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 24 novembre 2020

Welcome to the newsletter highlighting The Economist ’s best writing on the pandemic and its effects. We have two covers this week. In Britain we look at the efforts of the ruling Conservative Party to redesign the British state in order to centralise power in the cabinet and speed up decision-making. Will it work? In our other editions we look at the rivalry between America and China. The achievement of the Trump administration was to recognise the authoritarian threat from China. The task for the Biden administration will be to work out what to do about it. We argue that America should aim to strike a grand bargain with its allies.In our coverage of covid-19 we analyse the continuing good news coming out of vaccine trials. We investigate the links between health outcomes and race and argue that, for the sake of fairness, governments ought to overcome their qualms about collecting data by ethnicity.We look at how Japanese health care is embracing telemedicine and how, in America, charter schools seem to be better at remote learning than public schools. We also report on Walmart’s success in turning the pandemic to its advantage. Our mortality tracker 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 the virus the official statistics are failing to pick up. We have been covering the pandemic in Economist Radio and Economist Films, too. This week we have a film about a rise in the mistrust of vaccines. Will that threaten the effectiveness of the vaccines for covid-19? These are strange times. Amid the unexpectedly good news about treatments and vaccines, comes the rapidly mounting totals of infection—a dismal prelude to the deaths that lie between us today and the easing of the pandemic next year. I hope that our coverage helps you take stock of it all. Zanny Minton Beddoes Editor-In-Chief The Economist
