Critical analysis of the Covid 19 pandemic
Perhaps we are just at the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic. However, at this moment - it seems to me - that the following are -at least- the main critical rational related to the way humanity has faced this crisis and the way the challenges should be faced.
- We will never be in the age of anthropocentrism. We must beware of dystopian positions but also of the belief in immortality.
- Philanthropy, which is the love of mankind, is now more than ever on trial.
- Countries are also isolated. Globalization is also being tested.
- Planet Earth screamed loudly at us. Will we have listened?
- Freedom is the possibility of choosing those actions that humanize us in close connection with other people. It understands that we are interdependent.
- Dilemitism must give way to the consideration of the other alternatives that are at stake. Both in times of peace and in times of war, the relationship between economy and health is strained. The balance should be taken based on evidence, wisdom and caution considering all possible solutions.
- A paradigm shift is possible. We only resisted out of fear.
- Existence is uncertainty; therefor science and scientific evidence are the only way to clear up the questions of life. In the meantime, caution must be exercised. But be careful! We must not fall into the ethic exceptionalism just to arrive first with the good news. The vaccine will go to the press first than to clinics.
- Social inequities have finally been revealed in a scandalous and shameful way showing the misery in which millions live. It is time to rescue human dignity.
- International organizations must be reformed so that Human Rights, Bioethics and Public Health are firmer, more available and more effective.
- Fake news, pseudoscience, populism, and the Dunning-Kruger effect have become the religion of many.
- Blaming the other will always be the rule; the Chinese people, the animals, the poor, the others.
- We must learn to invest more in health and less in weapons.
- We are morally obliged to give the same priority, in terms of protection of human life, to other global health events as we have given to covid-19.
- Human life is tremendously fragile. Let us live vigorously every moment with our loved ones.
