The Covid-19 pandemic evinces the need to cooperate despite political differences

The impact of COVID19 can already be measured and will be assessed in the future by the striking numbers of people infected, the unacceptable numbers of deaths, the unquestionable damages to the world economy, production, trade, employment and personal income of millions of people.  It is a crisis that goes well beyond the scope of health.
