Synopsis

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every human being on the planet and forced us all to reflect on the bioethical issues it raises. In this timely book, Gregory Pence examines a number of relevant issues, including the fair allocation of scarce medical resources, immunity passports, tradeoffs between protecting senior citizens and allowing children to flourish, discrimination against minorities and the disabled, and the myriad issues raised by vaccines.

Engages with empirical data and the real-world practical problems that bear on pandemic response.

Informed by foundational ideas in ethics as well as the latest in bioethics scholarship.

Examines COVID-19 in the context of other historical pandemics.
