Abstract

This paper analyzes the impact of Globalization as in the main reason of the fast spread of Wuhan-COVID-2019 worldwide. We divided into three large pillars how Globalization works worldwide followed by:

(a.) the institutional, legal, and political approach of Globalization;

(b.) the massive transportations systems and the development of information communication technologies (ICT’s);

(c.) the free trade liberalization and labor mobility.

Hence, the main objective of this research is to show that Globalization is the major responsible of the fast and unstoppable spread of Wuhan-COVID-2019 globally. Finally, the same research suggests a deep reform of Globalization to avoid again any massive contagious epidemic diseases to reduce its impact economically and socially.
