The COVID-19 crisis has provided us with a wake-up call, an opportunity—and it is important that we as a species awaken to the imperative for us to change and that we act in ways that are beneficial to all lifeforms.

I recently read an excellent essay by Dr. David Wiebers , Emeritus Professor of Neurology and Consultant Emeritus in Neurology and Health Sciences Research/Epidemiology at Mayo Clinic, and Dr. Valery Feigin , Professor of Neurology and Epidemiology and Director of Auckland University of Technology's National Institute for Stroke and Applied Neuroscience, titled "What the COVID-19 Crisis Is Telling Humanity. " It was first published in the prestigious journal Neuroepidemiology and reprinted with some additional text and commentaries in Animal Sentience.

"What the COVID-19 Crisis Is Telling Humanity" is a very concise and easy-to-read, detailed summary of the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, and I'm pleased that Dr. Wiebers could take the time to answer a few questions about this landmark essay.

Why did you and Valery write "What the COVID-19 Crisis Is Telling Humanity"?

The COVID-19 crisis, while creating incredible hardship and destruction, has also provided us with important information, messages, and opportunities relating to the future of our species and other lifeforms on Earth. We felt compelled to point out the most pertinent of these latter aspects, along with what we thought were the relevant implications not only for the medical community but also for all of society.
