Corona Literature Explosion Ever since the novel coronavirus-generated disease called covid-19 became global news late last year, countless views and comments have appeared in the world’s print and electronic media on various aspects of the pandemic and its impact on the contemporary social order both at national and global levels. There is an almost endless supply of news each day on the pandemic and related issues that would make it difficult for anyone to keep track of each one of them. My simple wish is that, during this historic period of home confinement imposed on us by the pandemic when free time is in relative abundance, I would come across enough interesting articles to read to enable me to be educated on the subject. Thankfully, from time to time, I have been receiving from several friends really thoughtful articles on coronavirus and the diseases it has generated, particularly covid-19, which I don’t think I would have found on my own. Perusing them has benefited me intellectually. These friends have shared the articles with me without expecting something in return. In the past but on different subject matters, I used to receive articles from friends accompanied with requests for my written responses. But it was not until April 2020 that I received the first corona article whose sender was soliciting a written response from me. The article in question is now the subject of my present discussion.
