| The digital talk will be this Wednesday, January 20 at 19 : 00 hours | Pandemics such as Covid-19 disrupt all our ways of (with) living, especially in a health crisis that is a matrioshka crisis, covered by other crises such as economic and ecological.

In this regard, health emergencies are going to be the new normal.

' This is the thesis of 'Epidemiocracia' (Capit�n Swing), �the book� of the doctor Javier Padilla and the epidemiologist Pedro Gull�n, who underline in the subtitle of the work that no one he is safe if we are not all safe.

" Both will analyze this Wednesday, January 20, the social and economic derivatives of the coronavirus pandemic that "does not affect everyone equally" in the program of thought and scientific culture Cartagena Think, in a digital talk , which can be accessed through the link HERE Viruses do not understand borders or social classes.

We have not stopped hearing this phrase as a mantra, as a magical adventure in which viruses appear from a neutral space, arrive, infect and disappear.

But it is false.

In reality, epidemics do not arise out of nowhere, they start from specific social and political contexts; Understanding this political, economic, health and social substratum is essential to analyze how epidemics affect them.

The plague, tuberculosis, AIDS, �bola, malaria and, recently, COVID-19, emerged from specific contexts, impacted differently on certain social groups and transformed the societies they encountered.

Now it is time to ask: who is most at risk of becoming ill during an epidemic?Who is most vulnerable to its social consequences? What health (and non-health) policy responses do we have to act in the face of an epidemic crisis? What health do we want? to face epidemics? What social transformations do we have left after an epidemic crisis? This book tries to answer these questions through the intersection of politics, society and public health in epidemic situations.society and public health in epidemic situations.society and public health in epidemic situations.
