Full marks to the Express & Star for its virus coverage
Down in Wolverhampton, the level-headed Express & Star newspaper is giving some of the best daily virus coverage, and with a useful Midlands focus. Unlike much of the UK media, they're not either scaremongering-for-clicks, or just parroting what larger news sources say. Nor have I found them, over the last few days, repeating dubious claims or being slipshod in their use of statistics. Just one example: in the Daily Mail today a supposed doctor states he's considering zinc tablets, but the Express & Star slams that down today, and backs it up by quoting one of the world's highest authorities on the matter.
