retail news in context, analysis with attitude

New York Times science writer Donald G. McNeil Jr. has yet another great piece about the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, reporting on what we may be facing in the coming year.

An excerpt:

"In truth, it is not clear to anyone where this crisis is leading us. More than 20 experts in public health, medicine, epidemiology and history shared their thoughts on the future during in-depth interviews. When can we emerge from our homes? How long, realistically, before we have a treatment or vaccine? How will we keep the virus at bay?

"Exactly how the pandemic will end depends in part on medical advances still to come. It will also depend on how individual Americans behave in the interim. If we scrupulously protect ourselves and our loved ones, more of us will live. If we underestimate the virus, it will find us."

It is a great piece.  Read it here.
