No surprise, Yuval Noah Hurari does an excellent job of summarizing this year of Covid pandemic in his article: Lessons from a Year of Covid.
Some key takeaways for me:
“If it is not too complicated to start monitoring what you do — it is not too complicated to start monitoring what the government does.”
“…we need to safeguard our digital infrastructure. It has been our salvation during this pandemic, but it could soon be the source of an even worse disaster.”
“…each country should invest more in its public health system. This seems self-evident, but politicians and voters sometimes succeed in ignoring the most obvious lesson.”
“…we should establish a powerful global system to monitor and prevent pandemics.”
Any current or aspiring politicians out there looking for action items need look no further.
