Anti-epidemic measures in countries all over the world: from luck to strict prevention

The global epidemic of new pneumonia is still accelerating and rising, and a “third world war” -style global disaster is accelerating. As of March 23, 186 countries and regions around the world have been diagnosed, and the cumulative number of confirmed cases has exceeded 300,000. Even the most difficult final boss in the game “The Plague Company”, Greenland, has already experienced infections.

Under the circumstance that China’s epidemic situation is gradually being controlled, the epidemic situation in various countries in the world is “smoke.” From the luck of the early days, letting go from the current to the current strict prevention and protection, closing the city and closing the country, countries have successively upgraded their prevention and control measures to cope with the rapid spread of the epidemic. So, how do these countries respond to the epidemic?

South Korea: Resolute
On February 24, the South Korean police went to Xintiandi’s headquarters to copy their homes and obtained a list of Xintiandi believers. Subsequently, the virus detection of about 210,000 believers in the Xintiandi Church was quickly launched, and the number of diagnoses increased. South Korea has invested in 96 public and private laboratories, and has also implemented a “Driving Speed” self-driving test station, which detects nearly 20,000 people every day. Detection. Through general testing and searching for suspects and close contacts, the country achieved a turning point in the epidemic around March 3.

Although there are still sporadic outbreaks in nursing homes such as Seoul, they are generally within the controllable range and have entered a long period of epidemic recession. South Korea has set another model of strict prevention and control and reversal of the epidemic outside of China.

Singapore: Criminal Police Remedy
Singapore ’s secret weapon is to mobilize the police ’s criminal investigation force to fully mobilize surveillance cameras throughout the country and find all “close contacts” —the standard is those who have been in contact with the infected person within two meters. In 204 local cases in Singapore, 7,544 close contacts were tracked and isolated, with an average of 37 persons per case. Through the police’s full efforts to track every infected person in the back, Singapore was able to ensure that neither control nor loss of control for more than a month. However, with the outbreak of the outbreak of neighbouring Malaysia, and the withdrawal of Singaporeans from Europe and the United States, the pressure on Singapore’s border control has increased sharply. It has to be announced that from 02:00 on the 24th, foreigners can hardly enter the country and are not allowed to transfer in Singapore. That is “closing the country”.

Japan: Different policies at different stages
On March 13th, Japan passed a heavy bill-the “Special Measures for New Influenza Measures” (Amendment), making it possible for the Prime Minister to issue a declaration of emergency. Japan’s domestic new crown small increase in pneumonia diagnosed patients, good Japanese health habits, likes to keep a certain distance with others, has a strong organization and discipline, like “obey orders”, “play by the rules” and other national character so that individuals face The epidemic situation is easy to be consistent with the national strategy. Therefore, the Japanese government has not adopted strategies such as “closing the city” and “all shutdown”.

Iran: Overcome sanctions and respond positively
The Iranian military was once ready to take strong measures to block unnecessary exchanges between people in cities. But the reality is that the lives of the Iranian people are almost as usual. After more than 20,000 confirmed cases were diagnosed in Iran, Rouhani finally announced during Nowruz holiday that he would not be allowed to go out in the next 15 days. Iranian experts predict that if the people do not comply with the epidemic prevention requirements, the worst possibility is to usher in an inflection point in late May. It is expected that 4 million people (5% of the national population) will be infected in Iran and 350,000 will die.

Italy: The effect of closing the city and the country is not ideal
From the 12 provinces that initially closed the Lombardy region to the national blockade, Italy’s prevention and control measures have escalated, but the naturally romantic Italians seem to be unable to control their legs and are still in various “waves.” The Chinese experts who went to Chian also got angry, the closure of the city was too loose, the bus was still running, the hotel was still partying, and many people did not wear masks.

Italian Prime Minister Conte announced the country’s toughest measures since World War II: Italy will shut down factories and the production of all non-absolute necessities, which is a huge economic sacrifice made to contain the virus and protect lives. The Italian soldiers came to gradually block the block-deliberately leaving room for blockade, first to isolate the town, then to isolate the region, and finally to close the country-always a step slower than the deadly path of the virus.

Anglo-American: From “Buddhist system” to active anti-epidemic
On March 16, the Imperial College of Technology launched a heavy paper by the Ferguson team. It concluded that even if the United Kingdom and the United States now change their measures and actively control the epidemic, it will only reduce the mortality rate by about half. And more than 1 million Americans will leave us because of the epidemic. The paper suggests that the British government should switch to “blocking” measures against strict defense instead of relatively passive “delaying”, and point out that this is the only feasible way to control the epidemic.

The British and American governments quickly adjusted their anti-epidemic strategies after the paper was published, and British Prime Minister Boris issued the most strictly prohibited order in history. Trump directly declared that the United States entered a wartime state, and subsequently declared New York State, Washington State and California as the major disaster areas.
