Bioethics during the COVID-19 Pandemic
This book offers a compelling ethical analysis of challenges in COVID-19 biomedical research, vaccination and therapy. Moreover, it draws attention to popular countermeasures, such as AI-based prevention, lockdowns and vaccinations. Through unique perspectives, it addresses some ethical challenges associated with the pandemic, providing ethical criteria guidelines for health emergencies, focusing on the allocation of limited life-saving resources in a triage situation and the dilemma of who to treat. In addition, the book highlights the necessity of the outlining of a global bioethical framework for pandemic management, rooted in human rights.
