Article IV:  "Financial Problems And Possible Resolutions To The Viral Pandemics":

The world was caught unprepared by the COVID-19 pandemic despite the decades of warnings of the threat of global pandemics and years of international planning to adequately fund the plans.  The failures have caused heavy human and economic price.  Hundreds of thousands of lives have already been lost, and the global economy is in the midst of a financial crisis. The greatest international public health emergency in more than a century is not over.  It is not too early, however, to begin distilling lessons from this painful experience so that the world is better positioned to cope with potential future waves of the current pandemic and to avoid disaster when the next one strikes, which it surely will.

The world economy had collapsed into a slump rivaling or surpassing the Great Depression, with unemployment rates averaging 8.4 percent in high-income economies. In the second quarter of 2020, the U.S gross domestic product (GDP) fell 9.5 percent, the largest quarterly decline in the nation’s history of 244 years.  Already in May 2020, the Asia Development Bank estimated that the pandemic would cost the world 5.8 to 8.8 trillion dollars, reducing global GDP in 2020 by 6.4 to 9.7 percent.

Karyn Bishof was diagnosed with COVID-19 in the March of 2020.   She had a moderate case and was never hospitalized. But now, more than a year later, she says lingering symptoms 

are so bad she can no longer work.  "I'm still dealing with over 60 different symptoms," she said. "I've had a headache every single day at a level of seven out of 10 or higher... I don't sleep. I maybe average, you know, 20 to 25 hours a week of sleep... my feet and my legs swell and turn purple."  Bishof is a long hauler, a group that experiences symptoms long after recovering from the coronavirus.  Public health experts warn long COVID is the next big health emergency in the wake of COVID-19. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Chief Medical Advisor to the President Joe Biden, believes that long haulers should seek more help from the government.

How can anyone do anything in such a terrible medical conditions of Karyn Bishof?

Yes, this is a real problem.  Keep trying to survive the viral pandemics by taking pain relievers and vitamins.  I know, people have tried multiple times for several years with and without legal help to obtain financial benefits from the government agencies with evidence but failed to receive any.  Therefore, be careful, you are on your own when get infected by such dangerous viruses like HIV and SARS.  

Funding viral pandemics by unemployment benefits and stimulus checks was a good short-term idea.  However, the strategy did not have any financial backing, stamina and medical justification.  Even during the peak of the viral pandemics, people argued that unemployed people are getting more money than when they were working and won the reduction in payment debate multiple times.  Three times of stimulus checks totaling $3,900/person were not enough for 1 ½ year of viral pandemics.

We need to be innovative in this matter and create financial resources to satisfy the real needs of the victims.  This way, we can make population healthy, productive and virus free. Of course, true viral research is needed to know the unknowns and stop the killing of general public for financial gains.
