I was watching a video on the “The Andromeda Strain” (released March 12, 1971) and it started me thinking. While the Michael Crichton story was remade as a forgettable miniseries in 2008, the COVID 19 “strain” raised some questions about how well we would respond to this disaster today.
First, could scientist now figured out the nature of the “strain” quickly enough to prevent further mass die offs and more importantly, respond properly to the potential humanity ending biological event? Second, would our elites be able to restrain themselves from trying to politically benefit from the crisis? Third, would any nation be able to ignore the weapon of mass destruction potential represented by Andromeda?
