Panic attack, anxiety, deaths, lockdown, economic collapse, confusion, and uncertainty -are some words to describe the current situation that we are all facing as humans on this planet. The reason is the notorious coronavirus-COVID-19 which has caused much chaos since November 2019. 

But who has anticipated this pandemic and how prepared were we when it first started to spread… Certainly, some powerful rich people were already seeing this coming. For instance, in October 2019  the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, along with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, hosted the Event 201 in New York. The event was about a high-level pandemic exercise – notably a pandemic simulation to foresee challenges during a real virus outbreak in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.
