Goldfish memories

It’s easy to forget how many unknowns we faced in the first half of 2020:

  • Hoarding toilet paper, basic supplies and antibiotics
  • Alcohol wipes and disinfectant shortages
  • Crashing stock markets
  • Tom Hanks
  • Do face masks work?
  • Is covid airborne?
  • Elective surgery suspensions
  • Ground zero in Seattle’s old age homes
  • New York City and Italy death rates spiking
  • Closed borders
  • Chinese disinformation
  • Ventilator shortages
  • Trump in denial
  • Confusing messaging from the WHO
  • Conspiracy theories and miracle cures
  • Long-tail covid impacts
  • Zoom as a verb
  • School closures
  • Tier 1,2,3,4,5 Lockdown levels

As a global village we’ve come a long way!
