Soon it will be the first anniversary of the pandemic. New lessons and new questions will emerge, particularly about the public role of science, and doctors and scientists, in the response to the disease.
Health authorities must communicate with governments to take effective action. Society must also get involved. In other words, a dialogue must be established between politicians, doctors and scientists and society as a whole.
This 2020 pandemic will affirm the relevance of science over irrationality in politics and give scientific knowledge, and vaccination in particular, a more central place in our societies.
