There was only one story we could put on the cover this month: COVID-19.The novel coronavirus has dominated every aspect of our lives over the last month plus. The hope is that, by the time you are reading this, things will be heading back to normal, but the repercussions will be felt for some time to come. We talk to F&B insiders about the long road to industry recovery, examine the impact of the illness on China’s entertainment industry and myth-bust some common coronavirus rumors (p36).

Coverage across the magazine has been inspired by the unique situation too. Cristina Ng decided cooking was the answer to cabin fever, and started a Quarantine Cooking series (p52) – be sure to scan the QR there too as there are plenty more delicious recipes online. Meanwhile, photographer Bill Hobbs captured the serenity of the empty streets and subways, something those of us used to the hustle and bustle of Shanghai could not have imagined before the outbreak (p10).

Elsewhere, for those in need of escapism, Bryan Grogan takes a look at the trend in Chinese cinema for Middle Kingdom myth-inspired animated films (p32) and hears from the YOOZOO Games team and their Western myth-inspired League of Angels series. Talking of myths, one we bust on p40 is that alcohol can kill COVID-19. Not true, but that didn’t stop Logan R. Brouse doing some serious Gaelic glugging, relating the legendary history of the Irish coffee along the way in honor of St Patrick’s Day.

Let’s hope that by then the city will be over the coronavirus crackdown and back on the craic.

Sláinte!
