Introduction from the new editors

Jacqueline Bloomfield, Karen Strickland

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


I am currently self-isolating for 3 days, having recently undertaken precautionary testing for the coronavirus. This has provided me with the valuable opportunity to reflect on how profoundly things have changed in the 6 months since our last editorial.

The world has changed from the one we knew in ways that few would ever have imagined; a health crisis on a scale that has not been experienced since the global Spanish flu pandemic of 1918–1919. This has brought with it a drastic change to how we live, work, interact with our families and socialise with our friends. Social isolation, home schooling and work ‘pivots’ – even bulk-buying of items we would never have previously thought essential – have become the new norm. What we now consider to be ‘normal life’ is extremely different to that experienced just a few short months ago.
