A Pandemic Crises Reality Check Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

life money

A global health crisis. A global economic crisis.
Both inflicting unimaginable pain and suffering, loss and fear.

 

Technology has advanced exponentially many times more than society has advanced. It is the reason that the pandemic has not spread faster and caused more deaths. Advanced communication can inform the world of what needs to be done to contain the spread and medical research can bring tests and a vaccination to eradicate it. The question is, will society allow science and facts determine the decisions that buy the time so that technology can save us from this insidious disease? Or will it put a price on the value of human life?

If and when a #stayhome order retracts,
The retraction must come from science and facts.
What won’t save our nations
Are political considerations
Or crises balancing acts.
