COVID-19 pandemic brings biological safety Problem Into Sharp Focus - Gorbachev Foundation

Moscow, June 16 (Sputnik) - The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into sharp focus the biological safety problem, which remains unsolved; it has revealed failures in the existing biosafety mechanisms; and it has also thrown into spotlight the need to strengthen control over the implementation of the Biological Weapons Convention, according to a fresh report by the Gorbachev Foundation (the International Foundation for Socio-economic and Political Studies).
"The crisis has brought into focus the fact that the biological safety problem has not been solved globally, with regards to both its medical and sanitary aspect, and the prevention of military usage of modern biological achievements," the report, dubbed "Pandemic as a challenge and a new mentality in the XXI century" and seen by Sputnik, read.
According to the authors of the report, lack of trust between leading nations is the most important problem, not "sluggishness" of the World Health Organization.
