Covid-19 Collection

The plague, cholera, smallpox, Spanish flu, polio, measles — the Covid-19 pandemic is far from being the first large-scale epidemic in world history, but this time humanity is better prepared to handle it with innovative technologies and advanced scientific research. Although the Covid-19 pandemic itself is a very recent phenomenon, the Museum has already collected a substantial number of items to document it: from disinfectants to face masks and face shields, informative material and illustrations. All this will serve as useful evidence for later generations as well as for ourselves — participants in this complex process of global transformation.
