Medicine lacks both drugs and clinically tested vaccines, and the health system as such quickly proved to be structurally overburdened. Above all, the democratic constitutional states of the West were not legally prepared for the pandemic.

Similarly, phylogenetic and recombination analyses strongly suggested a zoonotic origin for SARS-CoV-2. After adaptation to human, some zoonotic viruses retain the capacity of infecting animals, as regularly shown for influenza A virus. There is a raising concern that SARS-CoV-2 virus may have a host switching potential as well. Anecdotic cases already suggest that Canidae and Felidae are susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Experimental intranasal infectio...
