Julian Peto and Paul Romer are right: we need weekly testing of whole populations in order to prevent the outbreak of new pandemics. /FT, 1 September 2020/

As human beings, we learnt how to wash our hands, we use vitamins and medications regularly and also developed a bunch of new habits to become relatively sophisticated human beings.

Up till now, during the present pandemic, we proved to be extremely lucky. This virus is not as deadly as the next ones might be. However, it is just the harbinger of the future, as the warning of a new global virus was the harbinger of Covid-19 four years ago.
