The current COVID-19 pandemic is testing political leaders and
healthcare systems worldwide, exposing deficits in crisis
communication, leadership, preparedness and flexibility. Extraordinary
situations abound, with global supply chains suddenly
failing, media communicating contradictory information, and
politics playing an increasingly bigger role in shaping each country's
response to the crisis. The pandemic threatens not just our
health but also our economy, liberty, and privacy. It challenges the
speed at which we work, the quality of our research, and the
effectiveness of communication within the scientific community. It
can impose ethical dilemmas and emotional stress on healthcare
workers. Nevertheless, the pandemic also provides an opportunity
for healthcare organizations, leaders, and researchers to learn from
their mistakes and to place their countries and institutions in a
better position to face future challenges.
