Just months after reports emerged of a novel coronavirus spreading in central China, our world, and all of our individual worlds, have been transformed by what has become a terrifying pandemic. Governments around the globe are taking unprecedented steps to restrict movement and limit social contact among their populations to contain the virus’s spread. Growing numbers of the world’s inhabitants are now living in either voluntary or imposed isolation, or preparing to.
WPR has covered the COVID-19 pandemic thoroughly since the early weeks of the outbreak in China and will continue to do so moving forward. Our goal is to serve as a clearinghouse for the clear analysis and creative ideas needed to address both the immediate challenges raised by the crisis, as well as the longer-term challenges that will arise in its aftermath.
