FROM MAY 2020 until October 2021, I was one of a team of journalists in Hong Kong, London and New York managing the Financial Times coronavirus live news blog. The blog ran around the clock from Monday to Friday, delivering news updates and commentary on the pandemic and its impact on countries, companies and markets. It routinely got 40,000 to 70,000 hits a day.
