While much of the world is still grappling with Covid-19, the British Chief of Staff has warned about the seriousness of the possible economic consequences of the pandemic, which could lead to a third world war.
General Nick Carter, the UK's chief of defense staff, said the historical evolution of events suggests that the outbreak of a global conflict is a possibility due to the uncertainties caused by the coronavirus.
The general warned that Britain and the international community would have to learn from history to avoid the missteps that sparked the world wars of the 20th century.
In an interview on Sky News on Sunday, Carter said there was a risk that an increase in regional conflicts around the world could turn into "a real war", as seen in the preparatory phase for the first. and the Second World War.
The military veteran argued that, with the world being "a very uncertain and anxious place" due to Covid-19, there was a possibility "that escalation could be seen leading to a miscalculation."
"We must remember that history may not repeat itself, but it does have a rhythm and if you look at the last century, before both world wars, I think it was indisputable that there was an escalation that led to an escalation that eventually it led to the war on a scale that we hope never to see again, ”the senior official said.
