THREE LESSONS WE LEARN ABOUT PUBLIC HEALTH FROM THE CORONAVIRUS

Coronavirus is a pandemic we never experienced. Yet the world had a similar problem in the past.

Even though problems like this coronavirus pandemic is not new, we are still not prepared to fight them.
That is why public health is so important and it should be a priority in any government’s agenda.

In the days ahead, each one of us should choose to trust scientific data and healthcare experts over unfounded conspiracy theories and self-serving politicians.

As the world will change as we know it from now on, then we need to change as well.

By making public health our number one priority in funding, research, and resources, we are safeguarding our health.

In more specific there are three lessons we should understand from this coronavirus pandemic regarding public health:

  • Science does matter
  • The public needs to be educated
  • Public health should be always in the spotlight

In this episode, we are talking about these lessons and how we can take action with the knowledge we learn from this latest pandemic. 

Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next.
