There is a huge amount of news and information produced every day, much of it very useful. In an attempt to keep on top of this the Enquirer will be publishing links to some of the stories we find on the interwebs.
The stories below are from all over the planet, not just the UK, as whatever our nationality we are all engaged in the same fight and there is lots to learn from others.
The best article we have read on the pandemic to date in the UK is Inside the ‘Covid Triangle’: a catastrophe years in the making which we recommend everyone should read.

As community journalists we do exactly what it says on our tin – we work for the community.
In Tower Hamlets, which covers most of London’s East End, that means we spend a lot of time investigating allegations of political corruption.
It is an unfortunate fact that the poorest local authority in the country is still beset by the highest levels of corruption.
As Love Wapping we were instrumental in exposing the electoral corruption of Mayor Lutfur Rahman.
We hoped that would be an end to our work – no such chance!
