The Impact of COVID-19 on Gender Equality: Beyond the immediate crisis, there are opposing forces which may ultimately promote gender equality in the labor market.

Epistemic Humility – Knowing Your Limits in a Pandemic: Being a true expert involves not only knowing stuff about the world but also knowing the limits of your knowledge and expertise.
In turbulent times, people go from “me” thinking to “we” thinking: “Selfishness isn’t a default because many times people are cooperative. It’s only in certain conditions that people might become selfish and individualistic. Perhaps there isn’t a sense of common fate, people are positioned as individuals against individuals.

They just haven’t got the resources to help each other.”
Climate change and the coronavirus are upending the way we fight wildfires: Indeed, every aspect of fighting and managing these incidents will require alteration. Fire camps, where upwards of several thousand firefighters eat, sleep, and work in extreme close proximity for weeks at a time, will need to be rethought.

Contact-tracing apps are not a solution to the COVID-19 crisis: What could possibly go wrong if society as a whole can now identify who is sick? This also raises the question, if this type of visibility should ever be built. Once we accept this for COVID19, what stops us form doing it for those diseases that have any level of mortality (because death is death). What if you have HIV/AIDS? What about H1N1? What about Ebola, SARS? Or what about the next pandemic?
Combatting COVID-19 through data: some considerations for privacy
EBU’s new Trust in Media report shows that radio and TV continue to be the most trusted media throughout Europe. By contrast, social networks are least trusted in 85% of countries. This gap comes into sharp focus when it comes to trust in news about COVID-19. While 47% of people use social networks for news on the virus, only 14% rank it as one of the most trustworthy sources. Globally, TV news channels are the most-used source of COVID-19 information, and the second most-trusted source after government updates.
