As the numbers of cases continue to rise, coronavirus has begun to stress the medical systems of countries around the world. This Digest focuses on the hospitals trying to manage resources and the doctors and nurses who are not sitting on their couches but attending to beds of those who need them. The result is a selection of deeply reported journalism, found with the Deepnews Scoring Model, on the struggle to save lives from the small towns to the big cities.
Monday began what for many people was a second week of quarantine, with new additions to those affected in places like the UK, India and parts of the US. This Digest picks up from where the last edition left off and focuses on life under lockdown. From problems with connectivity to how to care for children, this selection of articles from around the world found with the Deepnews Scoring Model offers an expansive look at our days in confinement.
Previous Deepnews Digests on coronavirus have looked at the disruptions to life, as well as the economic impacts of the pandemic. This edition looks at something more personal, the fact that millions of workers have now turned their homes into their offices. As large parts of the world get used to a new normal for the coming weeks, articles from all over the globe explore what it means to live under lockdown.
Last week’s Digest on coronavirus and the economy looked at different business sectors and parts of life where the disease was making itself felt. As events change rapidly day by day, Deepnews has decided to provide more regular updates about different angles of the crisis. This mid-week Digest again covers the economy, but focuses on the global and national responses as countries around the world prepare for months on lockdown.
