Hi everybody. I’m Mary Beth, Science Editor The ledge.
This month we are officially launching a newsletter version of Antivirus, a column we are quietly rolling out on the site every Saturday morning. It’s all about the ineffective efforts scientists are making to understand coronovirus – and how to stop it.
I run my own science desk, so the focus of the newsletter is mostly on scientific discoveries and debacles, from first confirmed confirmations to interpretations of scientific studies that transcend themselves. We will also highlight the human side of this epidemic – stories around the Internet that show how the disease is affecting people’s lives.
We have been months in this epidemic, and there is still much left to learn and a lot of people are on the line. With so much at stake, all this information can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Join us each week for the latest, and in the meantime, stay safe there.
