1st. Humanity hopes scientists and medical researchers find COVID-19’s cure promptly. We can refuse to cooperate, but we have to be aware human life is at risk. Besides, this virus has to be the reason for medical research cooperation.

Current time should be the proper moment to build a solidarity and empathy global network. Being as most human problems can be solved according to these principles. Poverty, inequality, unemployment, injustice, insecurity, and terrorism are good examples of this idea.

Furthermore, non-developed countries have a strong dependence on richer countries. Those countries should focus their effort on developing the agroindustry sector within their borders.
8th. This virus can change the mentality about hygiene relevance. It cannot be restricted to any cultural tradition because social life should consider healthy conditions.
9th. There is possible to think COVID-19 is calling for human awareness. Humanity needs to reflect on its destiny since we have only one option to make better our life. The global population is living chaos because of COVID-19.
