The world is starting to get over the state of denial, which most people adopted as a defense mechanism against the global pandemic labeled as the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are, bitterly, realizing that we are too weak to stop a microscopic being from attacking our respiratory system and laying many of us dead or sick. The people of planet Earth, with their scientific expertise, mighty militaries, political prejudices, and clashing civilizations, are still struggling, not only to find a medical solution for containing the new virus, but most importantly for minimizing the political and economic damage that shall, inevitably, result from this brutal attack on our human race.


The “divide and conquer” strategy of this cruel attack, by nature on man, forced nations, not only individuals, to apply social and diplomatic distancing. This turned the global crisis into an infinite number of domestic crises. To limit the spread of the Coronavirus, countries had to close its borders and isolate itself from the rest of the world, while domestically forcing a curfew or a complete lockdown. Every government, in every state, is, thus, forced to face the crisis alone. A state’s foreign affairs or regional status, have become of no tangible value, in aiding the “solitary confined” government in the tough battle to rescue peoples’ lives, while preserving a stable economy and an unwavering system of governance.
