by share

Amid a media environment swirling with speculation, fear, and disillusionment, a need has arisen to take a step back and trace the imprint that the coronavirus pandemic has left on our global social systems and the people who make them up.

Although it has left a path of tragedy in its wake, this pandemic may serve as the wake-up call we need to start making some changes. Learn how in this VOX Quaranzine, which illustrates how far the coronavirus outbreak goes beyond its viral roots.
