The Economist: A special edition on our coronavirus coverage

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 1 luglio 2021

Welcome to our weekly newsletter highlighting the best of The Economist’s coverage of the and its effects. Our Briefing this week focuses on how covid-19 has disrupted education on a scale never seen before. By mid-April 2020 more than 90% of the world’s students had been locked out of classrooms. Closures have lasted months, harming children’s learning, safety and well-being. But as youngsters in rich countries return to their classrooms, reformers hope the shock will lead to changes that will make schools more efficient, flexible and fair. In a Leader, we argue that closing the world’s schools caused children great harm—and that they will need help to catch up on lost learning. Covid-19 has stymied governments’ efforts to collect data about their citizens. But the pandemic may spur innovation, too, as national statistics offices have had to adapt to the pandemic.After a stumbling start, the European Union is vaccinating at a fast pace. Current trends suggest it will in the next month overtake America in jabs administered per person.America’s labour market is tighter than it has been in years—workers are quitting jobs at rates not seen this century. It is a subtle indication of optimism about the economy.The first covid-19 vaccines came from rapid innovation and have already saved millions of lives. What new technologies are in the pipeline? On “The Jab”, our weekly vaccine podcast, we look ahead to the next generation of inoculations.Finding reliable and clear information about covid-19 can be tricky, but The Economist’s writers have been answering some of the biggest questions since the early days of the pandemic. We have pulled together a selection of our explanatory articles on the virus and the vaccines.In a “By invitation” article, Alison Gopnik, a cognitive psychologist, argues that one lesson from lockdowns could be a revolution leading to caregivers being valued properly. Showing more respect for such care, she thinks, could lead to a new political agenda that bypasses the usual ideological divisions. Zanny Minton Beddoes Editor-In-Chief font: The Economist
