Quarantine with “human touch”
Eugene Nayshtetik, managing partner of the biomedical innovation company Lorton Investments, urged to think about the “side effects” that come with strict quarantine measures, taken by most governments: “Quarantine is the same medical technology as any other, and the same standards should be applied to it as to any other therapeutic intervention. In particular, it is important to consider side effects with changes in the quality of people`s life. It is not a secret that doctors all around the world keep reporting about an increase in stress-induced diseases: someone has got an ulcer, others suffer from aggravated cardiovascular problems. There is no way I appeal to the quarantine measures abolition. I just want to say that these measures should be planned with a “human touch”. When deciding on how to tackle the pandemic, authorities should treat people like people, not like an abstract population”.
