How we distribute risk within society

by Jonathan Wolff
  • Key point 1
    It is important to think about the moral and political aspects of the way in which we distribute risk within society. What are we doing for those who are subjected to a higher level of risk for the sake of the rest of us?
  • Key point 2
    The social contract theory allows us to think of fair distribution of risk by compensating those who run higher levels of risk and may suffer harm because of it.
  • Key point 3
    Vaccination itself may not rid society of the health risks posed by the pandemic. We may still need to continue all safety measures so as not to put others at risk.
