‘We are not the solution’: A history of the COVID-19 pandemic
It’s been six years since the pandemic.
There’s been a dramatic reduction in the number of new cases, but deaths have still been on the rise.
As the world’s population has grown, so too has the burden of COVID.
It’s now the world´s second leading cause of death, after heart disease.
In 2016, COVID infections cost the US economy about $15.6bn.
The cost has risen dramatically, too.
The World Health Organisation has projected a $13bn loss in COVID cases in the next year alone.
The global cost is now almost $30bn a year.
A key reason for the rise is a rise in antibiotic resistance.
Scientists are now predicting a rise of between 10 per cent and 30 per cent in resistance to new antibiotics over the next 10 years.
But the rise in resistance isn’t solely a global phenomenon.
Some of the world�s major economies have already experienced significant price increases, including the UK and Germany, which have seen a huge rise in prescription drug prices.
As the global pandemic approaches, what can governments do to slow the spread of the virus?
The first thing that governments can do is take the fight against COVID seriously.
There are three pillars to tackling COVID: prevent the spread, contain the spread and contain the death.
Preventing the spread means that people who are infected and spread COVID can’t go about their daily business.
They can’t buy groceries, shop for clothes, buy a car or even take their children to school.
This is the most important part of the strategy to prevent the pandemics spread.
Control the spread is also critical.
The world has witnessed the emergence of an array of new vaccines and antibiotics.
Many of these have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US, Canada and the UK, and by Europe and Australia.
However, the pandemaker is not just a disease.
The pandemic is an epidemic that needs to be tackled across the globe.
In some cases, countries have resorted to using military force and using social media to spread the virus.
In the US alone, the US military has launched an online campaign to raise awareness and fight the pandemate.
This has meant that many countries have had to adapt to a pandemic that is still unfolding.
In other countries, the crisis has been even more complex.
For example, in some countries, outbreaks have been triggered by the spread from an infected person to a non-infected person, or by people coming together to infect each other.
It is difficult to determine exactly how many of the pandicars cases have been caused by non-resistance, or how many have been spread by resistance.
In many countries, there are still a number of people infected with COVID who are not showing symptoms.
But this can be a cause of concern, as people are more susceptible to the virus if they have not yet started to show symptoms.
Contain the spread can also be a challenge.
As with other infections, the virus spreads when people are exposed to it.
This means that even if the spread has been stopped, it is not yet completely contained.
For some people, it may be too late.
Others are too weak to fight the virus, or the infection has spread to other parts of the body.
Carrying on without tackling the spread could mean that the world will not be able to tackle the pandemia effectively.
Countries need to take action now.
Governments should take the necessary measures to tackle COVID to prevent its spread.
This includes: implementing an effective infection control strategy that includes the prevention of infection, the prevention and control of the transmission of COV-19, and the rapid detection and control, and rapid isolation and treatment of those at high risk of contracting COVID from COVID infected people.
This includes setting up public health networks and vaccination programmes to prevent transmission and the spread.
Governments can also take steps to reduce COVID related deaths, and to help prevent infections from spreading to those who have already died.
These actions should include: encouraging healthcare workers to wear masks, providing a safe place for them to work, and encouraging those who are sick to seek care if they feel they may need to.
Governments also need to make sure that they can help people who have contracted COVID in other countries and abroad stay connected and to be able and willing to get tested for COVID infection.
They also need measures to help people stay safe during the pandemi, including measures to ensure that COVID is detected early and the health care workers who are working in areas where the virus has spread.
