How US & UK media have ratcheted up Covid-19 information war against Russia to distract from problems at home

For a few weeks it seemed British and American media had decided to tone down its usual Russia-bashing while the country grappled with the coronavirus pandemic. Sadly, it was too good to be true.
Especially given the fact neither London nor Washington has much to brag about in their handling of the crisis.
