The first half of the twentieth century saw two devastating global events in the First World War and the Second World War. These two wars not only changed the international geopolitical maps but also changed our planet in a way that was not known before. While the human race has made huge scientific and technological progress over the decades, it has also lived in the shadows of a Third World War since then. Fortunately, it has not happened (as yet).
The outbreak of the COVID19 pandemic has, however, definitely created a global scenario that is no less than a World War. Some experts might even call it worse than a global military war. The reason being, not a single nation on the earth has been able to stay untouched from the pangs of the Mighty C – the Corona Virus! In fact, nations that boast of being the most developed countries in the world have been the worst hit. The Mighty C has changed the world completely in every sense and it continues to do so. And we are still fighting it at the global scale. We are still at War! And while the blame game is quite on, we are all in it together. That’s the reason I am prompted to call it ‘World War C’. It is difficult to predict how long we will have to wage this war. But one thing is for sure, winning this war is critical. Our very survival is at stake!
