Saturday Stories: 7 Months In, Magical Thinking, Long Haulers, And Weighing Kids In School

Andrew Joseph, Helen Branswell, and Elizabeth Cooney, in STAT, review all that we currently know about COVID-19 and the pressing questions that remain

Gregg Gonsalves, in The Nation, on the mortal need to resist magical thinking.

Ed Yong (god he's fantastic), in The Atlantic (who can't be paying him enough), on the need to understand the COVID long haulers to truly understand the pandemic.

Me, in Medscape, on why I think it's an incredibly awful idea to weigh kids in schools (as is the plan in the UK) to track their COVID gains.
