Understanding global health governance as a complex adaptive system: Global Public Health: Vol 6, No 6. Introduction While it is difficult to point to a specific turning point in the evolution from international health towards global health, the changes that have lead Rosenau (2003, pp. 410–414) to relinquish the use of the term ‘international’ in his conceptualisation of world affairs are evident also within the health sector.
The past decade and a half has seen a substantial increase in the numbers of stakeholders in health, and in the configuring of their relationships.

Point of no return: COVID-19 and the U.S. healthcare system: An emergency physician’s perspective.
In medicine, we examine our errors closely.
Since the publication of To Err Is Human by the Institute of Medicine at the end of the past century, patient safety and quality are priorities (1). One core principle is that we cannot improve care if we do not examine our errors and use them to change our processes. Coronavirus detected on particles of air pollution. Coronavirus has been detected on particles of air pollution by scientists investigating whether this could enable it to be carried over longer distances and increase the number of people infected.
The work is preliminary and it is not yet known if the virus remains viable on pollution particles and in sufficient quantity to cause disease. The Italian scientists used standard techniques to collect outdoor air pollution samples at one urban and one industrial site in Bergamo province and identified a gene highly specific to Covid-19 in multiple samples.

Researchers are still learning a lot about the COVID-19 coronavirus: what it does to the body, what other animals it infects — dogs, for example — how to treat the disease, and, of course, how contagious and lethal the new virus is for humans.
Antibody tests, designed to determine how many people have been infected with the coronavirus, suggest the coronavirus is less fatal for the average individual, and far more contagious, than originally believed. Some people, largely conservative opinion journalists, cite the serology data to argue the coronavirus outbreak is no more deadly than the seasonal flu and the U.S. has overreacted. Infectious disease experts come to the opposite conclusion. 'Something we've never seen before': Scientists still trying to understand baffling, unpredictable coronavirus. MILWAUKEE – The new coronavirus has spread like wildfire, killed — and spared — people of all ages and all health conditions, baffled doctors, defied guidance and conventional wisdom, and produced an unprecedented array of symptoms.
There's never been a virus like it. "This gets into every major biological process in our cells," said Nevan J. Krogan, a molecular biologist at the University of California, San Francisco, who has studied HIV, Ebola, Zika, dengue and other viruses over the last 13 years. : The mystery of asymptomatic 'silent spreaders' As the crisis has unfolded, scientists have discovered more evidence about a strange and worrying feature of the coronavirus.
While many people who become infected develop a cough, fever and loss of taste and smell, others have no symptoms at all and never realise they're carrying Covid-19. Researchers say it's vital to understand how many are affected this way and whether "silent spreaders" are fuelling the pandemic.

Pandemics' historical role in creating inequality. In her News Feature “An unequal blow” (15 May, p. 700), L. Wade explores how past pandemics disproportionately affected marginalized groups. It is important to recognize that in addition to exacerbating marginalization, pandemics set the stage for inequalities that have persisted for centuries (1).
Historically, pathogens introduced by European conquistadors and colonists contributed to Indigenous population collapses throughout the Americas, facilitating colonial exploitation (2). Abrupt declines in the health and size of Indigenous populations, socio-cultural dislocation, and opportunistic grabs for resources became a strategy used by successive colonial governments (3). As scientists, we have a role in dismantling this colonial playbook to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) from further marginalizing Indigenous communities. Today's Indigenous peoples are facing a pandemic crisis. Arundhati Roy: ‘The pandemic is a portal’ Who can use the term “gone viral” now without shuddering a little?
