Crisis creates knowledge

The Corona pandemic is a collective stroke of fate. Science and modern medicine have contributed to the introduction of preventive measures to combat the virus and society has been able to react proactively.

Does science enable better risk assessment? How does it contribute to decision making? Will the experience with Covid-19 enable us to better face future pandemics?
