If, in the face of the epidemic that is among us, fear caught us, at the idea of the terrors it inspires and the shock it inflicts, let us remember that it is given to some great books to feel enough strong, armed enough to oppose it.

Let us be discerning: do not deny crises, do not close to disturbing information, to weak signals; set up democratic, flexible and scalable structures.

History teaches us that when it comes to infectious diseases, human genius, often personified by extraordinary figures, always finds a solution, a remedy. The precautionary principle does not apply when there is an emergency.
