Naomi Klein on How Healthcare Industry & Silicon Valley Plan to Profit from Coronavirus Crisis

Top infectious disease experts testified to the Senate that needless death and suffering could result from "reopening" too quickly. Author and journalist Naomi Klein says a “pandemic shock doctrine” is beginning to emerge. The U.S. healthcare industry "sees a potential bonanza" in the coronavirus, she says, which represents "a win for them.” She also details how our lives could be transformed into a “living laboratory for a permanent — and highly profitable — no-touch future" that benefits tech companies providing the so-called solutions to the crisis, including in healthcare, education and surveillance.
