Our coverage of the coronavirus
The coronavirus has killed more than 2m people and infected many millions more since it emerged in China in December 2019. It has compelled many governments to lock down their populations to a degree unimaginable until recently and is causing the most brutal recession in living memory. The rapid development of vaccines does at least offer some grounds for optimism. The Economist is analysing every aspect of the pandemic—from the science of the virus and the vaccines, to the political, economic and social consequences—with rigour and a global perspective.
