The World’s Best and Worst countries at dealing with Covid-19.

The World’s Best and Worst countries at dealing with Covid-19.

Things do not happen by chance.

Some countries were prepared, reacted quickly and were effective at dealing with the pandemic. Others were appalling.

The Best Countries

Taiwan6757
New Zealand205925
Iceland539226
Singapore5821829
Vietnam134735

A set of countries that, before this all took off, you would not necessarily imagine doing that well. But they were prepared. They shut their borders, tracked and traced and got completely on top of it.

The Worst Countries

USA19,800,000343,000
Brazil7,620,000195,000
India10,300,000149,000
Mexico1,140,000125,000
UK2,430,00073,000

It looks like a list of countries run by populist narcissists! This bunch were unprepared, complacent, did not prepare, dithered, denied and were utterly ineffective.

How does it feel to be in the top five most incompetent and useless? Nearly a million unnecessary deaths between the five of them!
