Summary

A pandemic is a complex phenomenon, an invariant for humans in their environment. In fact, from the Neolithic era to the present day, from the cattle plague to Sars-Cov-2, the emergence of new infectious diseases is often the result of changes that humans force on their environment. The emergence of a global health crisis in 2020 is a real warning sign on the uses of life.
In this documentary, discover how biologists, anthropologists, mathematicians and historians can help us learn the lessons of the Covid-19 health crisis and prevent a new pandemic from crippling society again.
