Facing up to issues book
During the worldwide Covid-19 virus epidemic that began in 2020, millions of words were published about what caused it, how it could be stopped and cured, the effect it had on societies, economies, and politics, and when it might end. Pandemic issues, and how they affected every country, consumed politicians, public health specialists, medical researchers, and people who contracted the disease or lost loved ones to it. Worldwide, governments' principal communication messages in their responses to the pandemic have focused on dealing with immediate issues. Pandemic-related issues, and myriad others caused by them, will confront world governments, medical providers and researchers, and citizens for years as the mid- to long-term health, economic, social, and political consequences from the disease become clearer, especially the lasting medical complications for some people.
