Imagine the Pandemic Without Computer Science

Without Computer Science, there is no doubt
There are many essentials we’d be without:

Zoom for meetings, Teams for schools
Storage for data and analysis tools

Computer models show spread of disease
Info graphics for  “next slide please

Secure protocols for shopping online
GPS software for deliveries on time

Social media means we stay in touch
AI keeps warehouses stocked and such

Software for tracking each new strain
So we can see when they wax and wane

Algorithms and coding tricks
For hospital rotas and bed logistics

With pandemic perspective, we appreciate
Without this tech, there’s a different fate

Years of research made this come true
Computer Science, the nation thanks you
