How is your country handling the Covid outbreak?

Here where I'm from there are officially over 10 thousand cases yet they still refuse to establish a curfew because they care more about the economy than the rapid spreading disease here I guess. They are randomly testing a huge bunch of people and whoever has the virus will be put in a hospital, but that just isn't enough. The people have been calling for curfew for two weeks now but with a government like ours, they won't listen.

We have the most infected in the world. But I heard the malaria pill helps people recover faster.
@SW-User Yeah ok then you believe what ever you want dont bother typing into google Corona Virus of unknown origin in the US because google will lie as well

@TheManWhoFellToEarth Are you working for the Chinese government?🤔
@SW-User Yeah
I'm in the USA and we have a leader who is fucking clueless. My government is NOT protecting the people. My government said it was fine with ONLY 100,000 deaths.

I'm hoping our leaders are some of thoise to get it. Cruel but that may be what it takes to get them to act properly!

It seems getting better, but I'm not sure how reliable our numbers are since at least Lombardy is overwhelmed. A lot of people have died in their homes in the worst affected areas, who knows how many are the real positives. They say even 5x-10x, real death rate is hard to tell at this point. Probably not the 10% reported, but definitely more than common viruses/flus.

My region is better for now, but still, I'm unfortunately in one of the hot areas. :|

Most of our businesses are closed except those that are essential

The government and most people are taking it seriously, but not everyone. We are told to stay home, only go out for essentials and alone, keep distance and not go out at all with any symptoms. But some people still hang out in the streets, visit each other, etc.

In the USA, the Great Trumpkin is going for a high score of 200K dead. He thinks that with a number so high, everyone will be impressed.

@daisymay he likes big numbers
daisymay · 46-50, T
@UserNameSW Yep, and he knows everyone likes big numbers, so it will be super cool when we breach that 200K mark. He may surprise us all and show us how great he is and try to get that number even yuger. He is bigly trying his best.

We had fewer than 1000 and we went into lockdown. Army and police on the streets. Alcohol and cigarettes banned for 21 days. Difficult to control people in my country, but all in all the government has been doing okay. So far every case they are trying to trace contacts and every case is published according to sex, age, province (area) and travel history. We may only travel to buy groceries deemed essential and basically we may not leave our houses otherwise.

And economy is something to be concerned about as well.

It definitely is but we reached 10 thousand cases in 19 days, it's just playing with people's lives for the economy. @SW-User

This part of the U.S. has been on lockdown for like a month. Millions are jobless. It's not good.
ABCDEF7 · M
More than 1k cases and lockdown all over country, except for essential services.
Khenpal1 · M
hard to say if curfew is effective in countries with large population
Ita a decision i wouldn't want to have to make.

@Justafantasy When it’s all said and done, we in all likelihood will still have corona but many more unemployed and it is going to be a mess! IMO
