I wonder if this is a cookie thing for you (or for me). I have a NYT membership so I wouldn't see the problem, but I've seen notices when I log in that they are offering all the Covid-19 coverage free. Not logged in, and going from the Google link, I was able to get to 8 articles without issue, including the maps.Unfortunately "THIS" did not work for me. I am reasonably certain the number of times I have accessed NYT articles (usually through Google News) is recorded in my cookies. Someone exceeding whatever their free limit for not logging in will get the 'you must either log in or get lost' pop up that blots out the page below it. Thanks for trying and thanks for that excellent link.
