SO MUCH TO READ, SO LITTLE TIME… IN THE EVER EVOLVING PANDEMIC: RECOMMENDED READ!
The New Yorker has published a series of articles written by Siddhartha Mukherjee under the heading Coronavirus Chronicles. The articles are worth the read. They are presented in multiple formats: print, audio, and on-line. The most recent article, The Covid Conundrum, compares the COVID-19 mortality rates, in different countries, noting unexpected outcomes. Why are some of the most wealthy nations facing some of the worst outcomes in dealing with the pandemic? It challenges some of the assumptions. I encourage you to check it out!
“While the virus has ravaged rich nations, reported death rates in poorer ones remain relatively low. What probing this epidemiological mystery can tell us about global health.”
