In the end of 2019, the news of a virus killing many people in China started circulating on media. But even then, no one took it seriously until the deadly virus started taking lives around the globe.
Yes, Covid-19’s attack has proven to be one of the worst pandemics faced by the world in the recent century. How, when and what caused this virus breakout is still a mystery. But because the epicenter of it was Wuhan, China, politicians of the world are seeking an answer from the country both financially and medically.
Apart from what this virus is and what can kill it, there are a few countries that claim to have successfully gotten rid of it. Where corona-virus is still taking hundreds of lives every day, countries like Chine, New Zealand, seem to have eradicated the problem far better than the rest.
But, have they been able to get rid of it forever? No One Knows!
Fighting Corona isn’t Easy
Still, the question is, how did these countries were actually successful in fighting against corona and winning the battle?
The answer lies in the strong leadership of these states. From PM Jacinda Ardern to President Xi Jinping, these leaders knew what was coming, and only did their foresight helped them and their countrymen prepare for it.
Once they were hit with the virus, rather than waiting for the breakout and taking over it, these leaders jumped into the field with a stronger strategy. They clearly defined the rules of SOPs and made sure each and every person within the boundaries followed it to the “T”.
Not only this, these countries:
- Practiced complete lock down
- Sealed the epicenters and quarantined people who tested positive
- Both local and international flights along with local transportation were stopped immediately
- Use of masks and gloves made compulsory
- People seen in the open fined heavily
The use of masks, sanitizer, proper sanitation of public places and gloves were made part of the daily ritual to take control over the situation. The governments were quick in closing down public places, restricting social interaction, which led to better management of the situation.
The Final Thoughts
Unlike what the world still believe, corona is not a joke. The world has to stay untied in a battle against unseen enemy, stay put and stay strong. Other countries still struggling with the increasing number of cases, take a lesson from China and New Zealand. How these and other countries are “this” close to beating corona.
Other countries like Australia, Bahamas, Bhutan, Bulgaria, Croatia, Costa Rica, Greece, Lebanon, Mauritius, Switzerland, Thailand, etc too are getting closer to their goal of winning the battle against corona.
Until the world finds a cure, the only way to get some relief from this pandemic is to practice social distancing,
By staying home and avoiding unnecessary meet ups. With a few simple rules to follow, millions of lives can be saved. Remember, if these countries can do it, you can do it too!
