Things Covid has proven:

1. The job you were told couldn't be done remotely can be done remotely

2. Many disabled workers could have been working from home, but corporations just didn't want them to.

3. Internet is a utility, not a luxury.

4. Universal healthcare is a necessity.

@Ricardus
for 4: universal healthcare is not a magic wand that will make new hospitals appear when the current ones are overrun with Covid19 patients

@boilingsteam @Ricardus
However an organised national healthcare system can plan and allocate resources as needed, whereas private health systems consisting of competing insurance companies and private providers have no system of nationwide coordination, mainly as they are designed for profit, not people.
If you are told to stay at home for 14 days, and you can't pay your rent or buy food, would you?
Would you bankrupt yourself paying for private care?

@Ricardus
I am in wide agreement with your post.
