This is what comes to my mind regarding certain countries in the night of 22nd March 2020 during first week of Movement Control Order (MCO) due to COVID-19 Pandemic. It’s mostly based on intuition and news coverage rather than deep reading or what not. I wrote it down in my notebook due to my blog being in the midst of relocation and just got to post it now.
|United Kingdom (UK)||KO (Knocked Out). Suffers devastating blow. Double whammy with BREXIT. Food scurity issues due to bad situation in Italy, Spain & France.|
|Europe||Mostly KO. Germany survives and be de facto king of Europe.|
|United States (US)||Probably survives but many will die especially from lower strata. |
Cons: No real National Healthcare infra.
Pros: Vast land can sustain population.
|India & Indonesia||Mostly KO. Vast democracy with challenging geography can’t possibly mobilize effectively. Indonesia underreporting.|
|China||Should be fine. Have strong manufacturing base and resources. Iron grip.|
|Australia & New Zealand (NZ)||Mostly OK. Expect the world elite take refuge here. Vast land & resources.|
|Russia||(Wild Card) Not deeply integrated so less chance of infection but probably don’t have infra to contain outbreak.|
