A mercifully brief but admittedly balanced look at what has already been copiously and more credibly, it should be noted, reported in other outlets. Basically a rehash, so to speak, of news from other sources. Nothing particularly original here. Similar quotes, commentary, and links, all the boxes checked for no other reason than the need to pass editorial muster. It is incredible that two Authors share a byline on what for all intents and purposes is something akin to a high school level essay. Read it if you must but do not expect anything especially edifying.

The article is about the WHO declaration we were waiting for a while. I expected clearer guidelines pointing to actions, but the article made me feel it was just a matter of wording. Like "ok, now it is a pandemic, and this definition is not related to the numbers" - this was confusing. What is it about then? Anyways, It has this great map that shows how the world is infected, with relevant info about numbers of deaths/cases.
