COVID-19 What did we learn?


The pandemic is pushing millions of people into poverty, increasing the unemployment rate apart from the unmeasurable mental trauma of suffering and losing loved ones. More than 3.3 million people have died of COVID-19, with unofficial figures much higher. This publication includes a detailed analysis of data from various countries to compare how selected nations fared comparatively in fighting the COVID-19 crisis. During the ongoing pandemic, some countries stood out for deploying techniques and processes to handle the COVID-19 problem better than others. The purpose is to understand how effective practices implemented by selected countries to stem the proliferation of the novel coronavirus could be shared for a better social outcome globally. These steps include testing and social distance norms, national or regional lockdowns, self-isolation of the population, travel restrictions, contact tracing, genome sequencing, and vaccination drives for adult populations across nations. The publication covers a few countries, significantly the United Kingdom and China, to understand the impact of vaccination and Wuhan Intervention, especially lockdown in bringing down new daily cases and deaths, flattening the total COVID-19 cases curve, saving lives through vaccines, etc. The study includes a selected group of countries due to limitations of employees at Middle Road OPC Pvt Ltd.

How did countries like New Zealand, Vietnam, China, Australia, Singapore, Japan, to name a few do an excellent job in containing the spread of the novel coronavirus without using vaccinations while many others faltered? Why do some countries have so few cases and deaths per million example, Vietnam has 0.36 deaths per million, but for many countries, this figure is in thousands? How did some countries flatten the curve of daily cases and deaths due to COVID-19? Why did Sweden perform worse among the Nordic countries in handling the pandemic?

 Why are daily COVID-19 cases in India rising at an alarming rate? 

Why an effective, well-planned, and executed vaccination rollout is a gamechanger in stopping the pandemic?  

You will find answers to many of these questions after reading this publication.
