Toronto Star editor Irene Gentle on lifting the paywall on public service coverage
As coronavirus continues to spread, we know you have questions about how it impacts you, what you can do and what it might mean. We want the most people possible to have access to those answers so we’re removing our paywall from the stories that aim to answer them.
That means free digital access for all, not subject to subscription or a meter, on select public service stories like this one: Mortality rate of coronavirus is 3.4% worldwide — more than double that of the flu. Here’s everything we know about COVID-19.
These stories will have a Free Digital Access label so you can easily identify them, and will be clearly identified on our website.
