The COVID-19 crisis is testing the world in ways that none of us had ever anticipated or envisaged. Many of us may never go through anything like this again and its impact will live with us for the rest of our lives. They say, never waste a crisis. What’s this crisis teaching us? What are the emerging threats and opportunities? How could it change how societies live, Governments are run and business is done? The truth is none of us know as this crisis has rendered us unconsciously incompetent – we don’t know what we don’t know. Join Dr Frank Aswani in exploring some of the possible outcomes of the COVID-19 Crisis
