Over the past two years, all over the world, countries after countries have shut down their societies in last-ditch efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.  

All across the globe, people have suffered enormously, and have endured a huge amount of pain and hurt. Many passed away. We all have suffered, one way or another.  All in all, this has been nothing short of a human trgedy.

But the pertinent question now is: What have we learned since the tragedy of COVID-19 and the imposition of lockdowns?

To Answer this question I thought is best possible if we note, once again, a selection of related postings from our GCGI Archive, which are noted below.
