Since I wrote the editorial for the June issue, countries around the world have continued to be in the grip of the virus causing COVID-19. Many of us in the northern hemisphere experienced a welcome brief respite in the restrictions imposed by our governments and health authorities over the summer months, only to be followed by a 'second wave' bringing rising infections, hospitalisations and deaths. As I write, the UK passed the symbolic number of 50,000 deaths attributed to COVID, including almost 5,000 in Scotland. Worldwide, the virus is responsible for more than one million deaths.
