A well-known Japanese comedian with a long career on TV was recognized again during the spread of coronavirus, however not on any TV screen but in an obituary. We were shocked with deep sadness to encounter the news that Ken Shimura, an influential and beloved comedian for decades in Japan, suddenly passed away due to Covid-19 despite the fact that we were about to watch a new TV drama with him cast as one of the primary characters.
This is a time of sadness around the world as we face the impact of the pandemic and the ongoing challenges to human dignity. ISQua is an international organisation that believes in the core values of humanity, of equity and justice, with a mission to improve health and healthcare. Equity is one of the intrinsic values of quality, yet it is the most elusive.
