ABSTRACT

COVID-19 is Not 'Like a Nuclear Attack' but Another Kind of Virus Might Be   [open html - 0B]

From the Article: "A few weeks ago the 'Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists' headlined an interview with novelist and academic Jeffery Lewis claiming it would explain '[h]ow the coronavirus outbreak is like a nuclear attack.' Indeed, Lewis insists the pandemic is, as he describes it, a 'nuclear war in slow motion.' It isn't, but as life under COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] restrictions highlights the nation's and, really, the 'world's' growing dependence on the web and associated cyber technologies, a virulent computer virus just might prove as dangerous as a nuclear war."
