Why coronavirus pandemic could spark new society that echoes post-World War 2 era

Blood-thirsty, machete-wielding gangs enforce coronavirus lockdown as police lose control

In March, there were just 65 murders and the Central American state went two consecutive days where no one died in a gang-related attack.

Coronavirus Conspiracy: Expert explains why theories spread 'more quickly than virus'

The origins of the pandemic, which are still unknown, have left people around the world baffled as the virus quickly spread around the world in a few months. Some bizarre theories include coronavirus being the body's reaction to the electromagnetic radiation from 5G waves.

Science’s battle to tackle plastic waste

Plastic waste is one of the major environmental challenges that activists have faced in recent years. I spoke to two specialists from Imperial College London about their research into tackling these issues. Plastic waste can take centuries to biodegrade. It can be washed into oceans, and be ingested by maritime species who mistake it for prey. They can also suffocate on plastic packaging. The world’s waterways are not the only place where the impact of plastic is dangerous. Plastic can also re
