Nicholas Christakis, a researcher at Yale University, argues that from a historical perspective, there has always been a period of liberation at the end of a pandemic.

In the year 2024, we could enter a post-pandemic period, says Nicholas Christakis, a sociologist, physician, and professor of Social and Natural Sciences at Yale University.

In his new book, “Apollo’s arrow: the profound and enduring impact of coronavirus on the way we live,” he discusses the effects of the pandemic on society from a historical perspective and anticipates what may happen in the coming years.

Regarded by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world and by Foreign Policy magazine as one of the 100 best global thinkers, Christakis is a respected voice in the academic environment. That is why his projections on social changes and the future of humanity have had resonance.

Annoyed with the White House for the way it has dealt with the pandemic, the researcher is hopeful that vaccines will help us out of this crisis, although he warns that group immunity will not be achieved quickly.
