Science After The Pandemic: In Search of Our Own Vaccine
Are we prepared for a new pandemic?
The COVID-19 has not ceased to be a global threat, even though we are no longer in a health emergency. After declaring the end of the pandemic, the WHO director stated that we need to be prepared to respond decisively, collectively, and equitably to the next one. In Latin America, there are scientists who have taken what they learned from the pandemic and are working to prevent history from repeating itself, especially in the development and access to vaccines. In this episode, we talk with Laura Palomares in Mexico, Guillermo Docena in Argentina, and Patrícia Neves in Brazil, all of whom lead projects to help prepare the region.They tell us about the opportunities and the challenges facing science in our societies and how prepared we really are to face the next crisis.
