Check your country’s COVID 19 numbers – how are you doing as a nation?
You know your country better than the statisticians do.
So if you are panicking about the COVID 19 virus/pandemic, try answering some questions for yourself:
- how open was your border BEFORE Dec 31,2019 when the first case was known?
- how quickly did your country respond by shutting down the border and large meeting places?
- how good are your health services?
- how likely are your citizens to report it to authorities if they fall ill?
- how quickly did your country act to protect the care centers from contagion?
- does the supply chain reach the poor and/or vulnerable over the rich?
- how close are you to China, Europe, and the USA?
- how much is there travel between you and the epicenters?
(remember the answers when you have your next elections)
