Western world has been defeated by corona virus unexpectedly. The underlying mechanism of potential chaotic circumstances should be evaluated carefully to prevent recurrent events. It is a debate whether western world has given enough importance to microbial incidents. As a medical doctor, when I was an imaging fellow at the Cleveland Clinic in 1998, I had a positive PPD which represents that my body previously produced a cellular immunity for tuberculosis bacteria because I had BCG vaccine. Surprisingly, this finding was not interpreted as a positive immunity at the clinic. They rather accepted my finding as a previous contact with mycobacterium tuberculosis. After catastrophic incident of corona virus, we have just learned that PPD (+) reaction which is related to interferon gamma as the recently documented protective indicator for mortality due to covid 19 is protective for severity of corona virus infection. In global perspective, it has been realized that it is not enough nation-based eradication of microbial agents and this kind of chaotic incidents could become a global problem.
Therefore, even though this agent came from China, a lot of
people from Western World visit China and similar health problems
could also be the case. As an academician, I would emphasize that
Western World should learn 2 lessons from this incident.
a) All nations should take responsibility for human being wellness world-widely.
b) Justice of Nature could balance some antidemocratic behavior like unfair competition against Huawei success which has also been mentioned by Boris Johnson by declaring that England will work with Huawei.
