For the record

An article referred to “people of colour” as being one of the groups more at risk of not having enough vitamin D; however, the advice issued by Public Health England relates to people “with dark skin” (“Does vitamin D combat Covid?”), 10 January, page 12, Magazine). And a reference to hospitals in “northwest England” should have been to northeast England, as the article featured two hospitals in Newcastle upon Tyne.

The former New York Times reporter Neil Sheehan died in January 2021, rather than a year ago, as a story said (“After 50 years, the Pentagon Papers give up their final secret”, 10 January, page 31).

The intended answer to 22 Across in Speedy crossword No 1,319 (10 January, page 63) was crochet, but the musical clue wrongly led the reader to “crotchet”.

In February 2020 Maya Gabeira rode the largest wave of the season by any male or female surfer, becoming the first woman to achieve this feat. But she did not set a new overall record for a man or woman, as a story implied due to an error in editing (“Making waves”, 10 January, page 17, Magazine).

Other recently amended articles include:
