Everything is Expensive
A mosquito bite on my ankle which was infected by dirty rainwater would have claimed my life.
Few people knew how much hard work was spent in vain and how much clashing between the researchers was induced just to produce enough first dose of antibiotics to treat the first patient (also in vain).
It was nearly 20 years since the bread mould's antibiotic activity was noted till the first life was saved.
Nations which don't give a damn to human rights would never spend so much effort and money and such a long time just to save lives which they would argue to be "readily and cheaply replaced".
In fact, it was in the WWII during which the Penicillin saved a lot of soldiers' lives and possibly changed history to the degree where human beings no longer see themselves as savage animals which would never really have been capable of anything better than having wars against each other constantly.
When people no longer die of minor wounds and labour, mass education is worthy and technology and culture is less expensive than before because women can safely take part in them since giving birth to children is much less deadly and in less demand (coz children don't die off easily as before).
It can be predicted that SOME countries AND religions would not be happy to see a vaccine for COVID-19, which will be claiming many professional lives (who need to travel around much for their needed work) before they make it to the top (and get a Nobel prize when they are 65 or so).
I will not be surprised to see more researchers dead in the coming months.
Yup, contrary to normal beliefs, WWIII is not a war with nuclear missiles flying in the air. It is a "history changing" fight against core elements that would ultimately determine the course of human history. If we lose it to the barbarian forces, the next century we would see most human females on Earth locked indoors for life-long labours and related activities and most males barred from professional jobs and enjoying any human rights just to produce enough for the elites to have a good life as usual, like all those stories described in our history books around the world, on lives thousands years ago.
Globalization will still go on, but in the form of global slavery. Most countries would be on a permanent lockdown and information is tightly controlled in most part of the world despite widespread usage of 5G technology (which will be used to control the citizens).
