Abstract

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and subsequent COVID-19, which has caused more than 6 million deaths worldwide, has shed light on certain interesting elements of global healthcare systems. a) people and things moving quickly from one part of the world to another greatly increases the risk of the spread of new infectious diseases; b) the presence of “weak” healthcare systems quickly influences the “stronger” healthcare systems; c) “universal” healthcare systems have proven to perform better than those based on private insurance; d) healthcare systems are heavily influenced by the economic system of their respective countries, but also by the way financial resources are used.
