One thing the COVID-19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated is the interdependence of the world. An epidemic in one country quickly became a regional and then worldwide pandemic. Interconnected economies, and their supply chains, eventually came to a stop, as did global and domestic commercial travel.

Schools closed, club and social activities came to grinding halt, and people's lifestyles have been greatly disrupted by the loss of employment or medical concerns. This does not even include the 800,000 whose lives have been lost after being infected with the novel coronavirus, and their family members, many of whom were unable to say goodbye in person.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
