One of the more curious aspects of the Covid-19 crisis is that we are all going through it. Like a world war, it's a shared cultural and historical experience that we will all have our own unique reference points to, and when it passes - and it will - our culture will then come to terms with how we record it and indeed integrate it into our story.

Except in the United States, of course, where the Republicans and Fox News will try to do a Sandy Hook and pretend it either didn't happen or was somehow created by Barack Obama, but I digress.
