The Corona pandemic and systems biology
A Systems Biology model of the pandemic reveils diversity and failures in government policies with dire implications for the lives of millions. Press, parliament, nor public follow or anticipate these policies critically. A new systems biology model should enable them to do so and shows how and why policies fail and suggests improvements.
