International Journal: This Hot Mess Called COVID-19

Apr 1, 2021 | Guides, International Journals

This is definitely one huge essential step, a necessary and needed part of a shift that will allow help us get through this pandemic. However, we must still keep other public health practices in place to reduce spread. At the same time, it is not too early to start thinking about how things may be different, with the knowledge that hopefully soon things actually will be.
