BEATING THE VIRUS – We’re helping readers fight the coronaviral blahs with 48 pages of great journalism that’ll brighten up those days of self-isolation. In our cover story, Trevor Grundy tells what happened when his girlfriend took him to what they believed was a clandestine 1976 party in apartheid South Africa to celebrate the jailed ANC leader Nelson Mandela. Adam Hochschild recounts the days when the US banned ‘fake’ news, Joe Allen tells of a bizarre UFC title fight in coronavirus-wary Las Vegas, Tony Sutton reads a book by the man who skewers presidential numbskullery, Andrew Fischerponders the sanity of frenzied supermarket shoppers, Linh Dinhwalks the almost-deserted streets of South Korea, and C.J. Hopkins reveals the great Covid-19 Thought Experiment. We’ve also got a six-page photo essay from England by William Crokeon the war that won’t go away, and our Insights section has stories from Binoy Kampmark, Linda McQuaig, Conn Hallinan, Trevor Hoyle and Sam Pizzigati & Sarah Anderson.
