It’s a powerful symbol. Every day now, for weeks already, if you scroll down the New York Times homepage, you see the same thing. It’s a very plain graphic, with just three lines of text, underneath the header “Tracking the Coronavirus”.  In red: “New cases”. Up. Every day, the number is up.  In black: “New Continue Reading

It’s the issue that just doesn’t seem to go away. Even now, from coast to coast, too many nurses have to improvise with unsafe equipment. Reusing masks and face shields. Storing N95s in paper bags.
