General surgery, palliative care and the new meaning of the phrase, “going viral”
“Today and for the foreseeable future, COVID-19 is a serious threat, virulent and contagious, not only leading to an impressive display of human vulnerability and arrogance, but also demonstrating how innovative and creative humans can be during a time of crisis.
On a daily basis, I am inspired by the outpouring of courage, empathy, and compassion, as well as the injection of original and mutated ideas that will govern the blueprint of our destiny. The truth is that the coronavirus has gone viral and, in so doing, opened the door to other remarkable evolutionary adaptations. Adaptations that will both thwart its virility and enhance our society’s immunity, resilience, and long-term survivability.’
