[Question] Will the coronavirus pandemic advance or hinder the spread of longtermist-style values/​thinking?

Note that this is not won­der­ing whether the pan­demic is “a good thing” over­all, and not dis­miss­ing how much dam­age it will cause.

I was prompted to cre­ate this ques­tion by see­ing Linch’s re­lated ques­tion “Should re­cent events make us more or less con­cerned about biorisk?”, and I think there’d be over­lap in the lines of ar­gu­ment and ev­i­dence that would in­form an­swers to each ques­tion.
