Anti-vaccine Campaign; Ethical Concerns

  • Shabih H. Zaidi NHS
Keywords: anti-vaccine, Ethics, covid-19

Abstract

‘And whosoever  saveth the life of one it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind ‘  (1).

The noble Quran has clearly mandated that every life is precious. And yet, the recent stories of loss of life at the hands of a nanoparticle is a blatant reminder of vulnerability and mortality of mankind--A virus whose weight was measured at 0.85 attograms or about one millionth of a trillion grams. It appears that the entire planet full of 7 billion human beings is at the feet of just 1 gram of viral load. And yet man is arrogant!
