Hint
Answer
Widely praised for "squashing the curve". Being an island country helped.
New Zealand
Warned the world that the virus was more dangerous than initally reported, but its political status made the warning fall on deaf ears. So far has had almost no deaths.
Taiwan
These dense Asian nations have had very few cases. Cultural factors and extensive testing have been cited as a reason.
Japan / South Korea
This dense Asian nation, on the other hand, has had lots of cases, but only 26 reported deaths
Singapore
This South American country was also notable for having a great number of cases and few deaths. Extensive testing may explain it.
Chile
These South American countries have been on lockdown for more than 90 days so far and have not yet defined when and how they will open again.
Argentina / Colombia
Closed literally everything on the main focus and made the virus disappear, or so they claim.
China
This country made a great effort in testing and tracing to prevent total closure. They were successful for a time but the virus reappeared suddenly. A state of emergency was declared on July 3.
Israel
Unlike its neighbours, this country relied completely on people's own decision to self-isolate, which led to six times more cases per million than them.
Sweden
This country became notable after a tennis tournament was authorized where not a single preventative measure was taken, which ended up with lots of infections and lots of apologies.
Serbia
This Islamic country was hit early and hard. In April the situation seemed already under control and they started to reopen, but the virus reappeared and took the number of deaths to 12000.
Iran
This country initially refused to take any measures while Europe was on lockdown. The government then learned about exponential growth and relented.
United Kingdom
These European countries had a really high percentage of lethality, only surpassed by countries where healthcare is almost non-existent. An aging population may be an explanation.
France / Belgium
While the numbers could have been worse, the funeral system of this country failed, leading to dreadful images of bodies left on the street.
Ecuador
This country, on the other hand, used to have almost no cases back in April, but the curve is now rising sharply. However, the situation seems mostly limited to two huge cities.
India
The President stated that no one would die (there have been 400 deaths so far) and refused to cancel a parade. This country was also notable for not suspending its football league.
Belarus
The President (no, not Boris) refused to stop shaking hands and kissing people. He claimed in May that the pandemic was mostly over. And then the number of daily cases doubled.
Mexico
One of the first European countries to be hit. Images of army trucks carrying bodies and hospital overcrowding was frightening for the rest of the world.
Italy
Most action was taken at state level. Some groups refused to wear masks, even in crowded spaces, considering that a violation of their personal freedom. The curve seemed to be flattening, but then went sharply up, which may have been caused by widespread protests in late May.
United States
The President actively discouraged any kind of measures, promoting rallies instead. A judge had to order him to wear a mask. Some states did close up. So far they've had a large number of deaths and the economy has not suffered less for it.
Brazil
No cases have been reported. Either there are none... or no one dares.
Turkmenistan / North Korea
