It’s 2018 and a powerful magic is used to warp reality. Every living human suffering from any disease or sickness is suddenly cured as if it never existed (down to a genetic level). However, this is but a one time deal. Sickness and disease may still be found in and contracted through the world around humanity.
Having received this great boon, what happens next? How would humanity realistically go forward after this?
Edit - I suppose the potential answers are rather open ended (which I know is a no-no). For one particular aspect more than anything else, I would like to know how this effects the economy as a whole and health oriented organizations in particular as well as what changes that (the economic) would bring about in society. Answers that fit what I’m looking for should address the short term, long term, and why.
- Anything perceived as being a disease or sickness qualifies.
- The idea for the genetic fix is that the next generation isn’t suddenly going inherit what the previous generation simply stopped showing signs of. Things could still presumably happen down the road, but let’s just say that the genetic material is simply replaced with its closest non-sickness producing relative.
