Past the Virus


History has a great deal to teach us about pandemics. Today's health passport is not too different from how the Venetians dealt with their traveling merchants during the plague, and discriminating against migrants following a disease outbreak is not new either. Past the Virus traces the history of health crises and how they have each transformed our economic landscape, containment measures, migration patterns, public policies and social paradigms.
