The World Economic Forum (“WEF”) held it’s Davos Agenda 2022, virtually, on 17 – 21 January 2022 with the “objective of orienting global leaders on the imperatives of the year ahead.” WEF continues, “the Davos Agenda will mobilise heads of state and government, business leaders, international organisations and civil society to share their outlook, insights and plans relating to the most urgent global issues.”
A session was held on Day 1 to answer the question: Covid-19: What’s Next?
“The emergence of the Omicron variant – and the reintroduction of national lockdowns, travel bans and quarantines – has reinforced the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic. Join experts and leaders to find out the possible scenarios for Covid in 2022 and beyond,” WEF wrote describing the objective of the session.
This session was in question-and-answer format hosted by Francine Lacqua, presenter at Bloomberg Television. The “experts and leaders” who attempted to answer questions, unconvincingly we might add, were:
- Stéphane Bancel, Chief Executive Officer of Moderna;
- Richard Hatchett, Chief Executive Officer of Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness and Innovations (“CEPI”);
- Anthony Fauci, Director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (“NIAID”); and,
- Annelies Wilder-Smith, Professor of Emerging Infectious Diseases at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
