When LSE COVID-19 launched in late April, cases were falling in the UK and the government was thinking about how to begin to ease lockdown. A few days before Christmas, much of the country was again in some degree of lockdown and official cases had reached record levels. How can we do better? Editor Ros Taylor (LSE) picks some of the highlights of our coverage.
