When this crisis will be over, the problems of world leadership, the return to exclusively national positions, the viability of many developing states or the rise of authoritarianism will continue, perhaps increased or perhaps alleviated. Depending on the management of the crisis, not on the pandemic itself, this crisis will be remembered either as a relevant event or as a simple parenthesis without excessive significance.
