Restoring the Earth’s Health, Post-Pandemic

The global pain we are suffering as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic should be a loud and clear warning, so that we put the brakes on greed and accelerate sharing in resource use.

Indications that the Covid-19 pandemic is becoming an endemic are increasingly apparent. The second wave has faded, the number of new daily cases is below 1,000 and the death toll is below 50.

This is far below the peak of the pandemic three months ago, when we saw 56,000 new cases and 2,000 deaths per day. Vaccination has also proven to reduce fatalities. The rate of new cases and deaths after vaccination was much lower compared to before the rollout. The situation is also improving in most other countries, although not yet fully under control. And more thankfully, there hasn't been a new variant as dangerous as the Delta variant.
