Why trust a government that is turning faster than ever and is clearly not in control of what is happening! nobody expects you to know what to do in this case, because for many of us, it is the first and only pandemic we have ever experienced in our lives. What the population expects from their governments is a sense of security, transparency and direction. The big problem starts when pride gets involved and nobody wants to look like they have no idea what they're doing, It happened in China, before finally admitting that this is bigger than they are.
It happened in the USA, where the president addressed the nation telling everyone that there is no reason to worry, as this is just a common flu and it is definitely not a pandemic, just so that he, a month later, says that he always said which is a pandemic and how great it is. their decisions are despite the obvious reality that everyone is facing, and the UK was arrogant enough to dismiss the threat and say that they choose not to take any action and allow the population to be infected as a way to weather the storm, only to realize - too late the scope of the issue and how many people are dying because of their inaction. Btw: Prince Charles - next in line after the queen - has been confirmed with coronavirus.
Hospitals are screaming loudly and clearly that they need help, the private sector is completely locked up without knowing how to support their employees without commercial activity and the population is confused because of the way governments are communicating. The crisis will pass, but the impact of government decisions on the market and the people who make up the state will be long term. The world is finally seeing who they put in charge.
Today, people must see how other countries are dealing with the problem and decide what their future leaders need. For us, South Korea has been a success story in dealing with this pandemic: quick action, clear communication, a long-term investment in the health of the population that has paid off massively today.
