The coronavirus turned out to be a global health problem. Rich governments snatched up all the vaccines, ventilators and oxygen. A vital test on solidarity and we are failing it.

How the colour line crisscrosses with other axes: health, wealth, gender, climate, technology. Consider the architecture of 21st-century life: artificial intelligence, public health, borders.

It is someone’s right to embrace the theory that ivermectin is a miracle drug, vaccine horror stories and conspiracy theories. But the rest of us reserve the right to be appalled by someone’s judgment and ethics.

Handshakes were one of the first habits to go when the Covid-19 began. You may find yourself confronting an outstretched hand again soon. The dubious return of the handshake.
