If this were to happen all over again, I assure you everyone involved would do one or two things differently. At the very least, we should see larger stocks and emergency reserves of basic hygienic goods, medication, and medical equipment. But I think we’ll see much more. Just like 9/11 changed airport security forever, after coronavirus…
If it were to happen all over again? Nik, it IS happening all over again. There have been pandemics in 1890, 1920, 1958, 1981, and 2009. Millions upon millions of people died and what did we learn? What did we change?
We have changed very little.
It’s not that we haven’t learned. It’s that people sitting on top of the money pile are willing to gamble the lives of people at the bottom. For profit.
Health care is run with a model that puts profit before people. And we the people keep voting in the people who perpetuate that model.
