As Britain′s death toll from Covid-19 approaches 100,000 there is one burning question: why did so many have to die? In Prospect′s unofficial inquiry, Tom Clark, Gaby Hinsliff and Philip Ball chart the persistent failures—both the chief scientists and the politicians. Former head of the Supreme Court Brenda Hale takes on the human rights sceptics. Andrew Adonis profiles new US President Joe Biden and argues that he could be an FDR for the 21st century. Rana Mitter asks whether China′s grip on Hong King means the end of the historic freedoms in the city. And Mark Hellowell and Sabastine Wakdok question whether the UK′s current aid policy is working. Plus: Emma Crichton-Miller on the beast in Francis Bacon.
