Are we 'Waiting for Godot?' A metaphor for COVID-19
"Waiting for Godot," a play by Samuel Beckett, one of the greatest works of the Theater of the Absurd, is used to illustrate the dystopic nature of our approach to COVID-19. The continued use of a lab test to inappropriately define a 'case' and the use of that measure to define the health impacts of the pandemic is discussed.
