The coronavirus epidemic is not yet over, but the economy and society cannot return to where they once were. Health systems need to be redesigned for similar epidemics in the future. We must learn to appriciate the underpaid heroes of the epidemic. Relocation procedues can start within globalised ecosystem. Whole sectors need to redesign their activities. In the meantime, we also need to realize how dependent we are to certain global players and what can be done to prevent this dependency.
