by , under All categories

Historian and professor Yuval Noah Harari* talks to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour about the threat of the global coronavirus pandemic. Harari stresses unity. Closing borders and isolating oneself is not the full answer. An outbreak of coronavirus in one country is a threat to everyone.

Amanpour: “What as an ordinary citizen worries you the most?”

“I think the worst thing is unity, we see in the world, the lack of cooperation coordination between different countries and, the lack of trust between countries and also between the population and the government. This is the payday for what we’ve been seeing in the last few years with the epidemic of fake news and the deterioration of international relations.”
