COVID Qualification Mainstream media and politics have seemingly become locked into a quantified understanding of Covid-19. The pandemics impact is almost entirely reported through numeracy, as such we become increasingly decoupled from both empathy and emotion.

This critical editorial decision would not only humanise the crisis and the critical need for continued collective solidarity, but also manifest an alternative means to understand and situate broad current affairs through individual lives and narratives.
