Consequences and Choices Post COVID-19

Whenever the COVID-19 pandemic retracts its deadly and infectious grip from the operations of the world, humanity will emerge as a scarred species having been humbled by an invisible enemy that persisted only because humankind was an ideal host.

With global infections numbering 18,364,694 cases so far and with deaths approaching 700,000 victims worldwide, according to data from Johns Hopkins University at time of writing, the Novel Coronavirus disease has certainly made an unprecedented mark upon modern humanity that will affect multiple facets of life, including education, entertainment, employment, retail, health care and other areas for the foreseeable future. 

As the world enters the eighth-month of being under the deadly assault from the pesky pathogen, humanity, via lock downs and stay-at-home mandates, should by this time, have had sufficient time to evaluate humankind's frail vulnerability to conditions and events to which present knowledge and science have no remedies. 

No nuclear weapons could impact the prevalence of COVID-19. Massive burns and glut production of fossil fuels would not alter the trajectory of COVID-19. Having unmatched GDP's is no immunity to COVID-19. Likewise, personal wealth is no inoculation to COVID-19. A president of the United States (US) cannot wish COVID-19 away with a "poof" in the month of April. 

In lieu of any viable vaccine to fight the deadly disease, the virus has, and it remains in control of modern high-tech communities with dynamic innovative qualities and cutting edge medicines. So, if nothing else, COVID-19 reminds all that all humanity is equal. 

Therefore, it should become obvious that post COVID-19 choices should be made with the benefit of all of humanity in mind from Yemen to the European Union (EU) to Africa to Asia and to the Americas. Hence, necessary choices should be made to prevent war, to end nuclear proliferation, to protect the environment and wild life habitats, to curb Climate Change, to accept racial equality and social justice as well as to having a sincere empathy towards every living species. 

If humanity fails at these necessary choices, then suffering the consequences of these failures will bring big troubles.
