Waiting for Godot Metaphor

0 0

The “Waiting for Godot Metaphor” for the COVID-19 response is carried forward and in an “Epilogue” a series of questions that have no clear answer are used to guide the discussion.

The lead question examines the justification of the WHO Declaration of a Pandemic back in March in light of the heightened socio-economic damage that followed in it’s wake.

To more objectively provide an answer to help in future events, a gradated Pandemic Index is suggested and a rudimentary example presented as an initial effort in an ongoing developmental process. On a linear 10-point scale (10 most severe) it is suggested that COVID-19 would be a 2-3.

Other questions addressed are: What is the usefulness of the COVID-19 PCR test?; Does the risk (of COVID-19) justify the level of fear?, and; What is the consequence of a herd immunity (HI) effect?

About Post Author

Ralph Turchiano

I have a strong affinity for the sciences which led me to create my sites. My compulsion for the past decade has been reviewing literally every peer-reviewed research article. Which can easily be validated by following my posts. To me, science is where the real news is, as it will mold our destiny beyond that of politics or economics. 😉 Please feel free to e-mail: 161803p314159@gmail.com
