On a personal note.

This week our Tales of the Pandemic series takes a personal turn, as the Globe’s editor Alastair McCready writes about being deprived of a final goodbye as his father passed away in a south London isolation ward amidst the pandemic. We’ll also be marking World Malaria Day by talking to experts, hearing how the goal to eliminate the virus in the Greater Mekong Subregion by 2020 is progressing.
