The Covid Chronology :: New Edition Posted

Read the Latest version of our Covid Chronology —

Here is the beta version of the 2021 timeline.

Oct. 6. was a big day.

Note from New York, June 13, 2024 — We have finally done a major overhaul removing the spacing errors described below. There are no new content updates, but we are working on the Oct. 6, 2020 entry.

Note from New York, Aug. 8, 2023 — Version 5.2.3 and version 5.3.0 (which is a series) are the same thing. Most of the problems exported from Word to Pages are resolved, though the 5.3+ series will continue to address minor issues. (These appear as words stuck together that are not detected by spellcheck.) I have not had much chance to add newly recalled events; if you have sent any in, please send them again. Thank you! — efc

Note from New York, July 20, 2023 — Version 5.2.3 — This edition corrects a diversity of issues created by moving the live version from MS Word to Apple Pages. There may be more problems to find; I am working on version 5.3.0, which will also have a number of added events. Sorry about issues in the prior version.

Note from New York, July 5, 2023 — Version 5.2.2 — This edition corrects a little problem in the prior one — none of the links were clickable. We’ve moved editing from Word to Pages and the error should be resolved.

Interview with Sam Bailey on the chronology appears at the bottom of the post. The chronology is also covered in The End of Covid.
