The Atlantic has an excellent selection of articles on the coronavirus it is offering for free. Take advantage of reading these – they are excellent.
When it was becoming clear that we were going to enter a period of quarantine, I began reading all I could on the pandemic, why these steps were epidemiologically necessary, and how it was that we got to this point. I read a number of articles from The Atlantic’s free coverage that helped tremendously in my understanding of what was happening…and what was coming. Their excellent free coronavirus coverage continues to explore the issues affecting our lives, and I can’t recommend their their reporting highly enough.
