Understanding the Enduring Consequences of Covid-19

Exponential View with Azeem Azhar

Science & Medicine

Azeem Azhar speaks with Yale Professor of Social and Natural Science, Internal Medicine & Biomedical Engineering, Nicholas Christakis, whose latest book “Apollo’s Arrow,” lays out the three phases of the world’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. Christakis argues that each phase will be fraught with risk and will leave an enduring impact on our society, economy, and politics.


They also discuss:



  • How a successful vaccine will influence global geopolitics as a soft power.

  • How to deal with the pandemic on individual and community levels.

  • How the “Swiss Cheese model” of accident causation can help policymakers build resilient prevention and response systems.
