The primary concern now should, unambiguously, be heavily skewed to this phase of the crisis – which may not necessarily be very short term. It is a critical, humanitarian phase in which the health imperatives and the medical needs and food supply take on an unprecedented importance for each person – and especially the most vulnerable in our societies – and for us collectively.

But it is already urgent, too, to understand the future and how we rapidly design and build a future that is sustainable.
