Being prepared for new pandemics — the health in me

Covid-19 hasn’t been humanity’s first pandemic, and it surely won’t be the last one.

As individuals, can we do a better job at preparing for pandemics? Health is a long-term commitment and in the imminent threat of an epidemic no amount of orange juice will make us suddenly immune. Instead, we should adopt a lifestyle that gives our immune system the best chance to do its job.

In this regard, lock-downs have made us more aware and creative. 

But preparing for future pandemics is a collective endeavor too – we need to be there for one another more.

If we take this solidarity into the future, we will all be better prepared for a possible next crisis.

Are you prepared for a healthier life?
