i think even here, most infections were french?
Is the stereotype true about them being unhygienic? I personally have never known any French people, weirdly enough, but if you aren't hygienic or mindful of germs, you'd definitely be more likely to catch a very contagious illness.
You and @rexwell ("French are known to surrender easily"!) need to stop being rude about the French!

It's not your job, it's mine.

You two stick to Canadians and Kiwi's.

Thank you.

Speaking of Sweden, here's Prof Johan Giesecke, former State Epidemiologist of Sweden, asks Australia how it plans to lift its lockdown without deaths. Interviewed by Sky News Australia. Sweden took a different path that will, he says, lead to the same result as the lockdown nations but with much less social and economic upheaval.

Don't worry. It's just over 4 minutes long.

I have been liking the Swedish approach for as long as it looked good, and that is from the start. The problem now is to get governments to adopt it.

I think they will, (they have no choice really) but they will pretend that they thought of it. Armed with their new raft of rules and regulations of hygiene and social distancing (just like Sweden) the death rate will be kept under control and they will hail it as a great government success.

They will never admit that they could have done it that way all along and without the disastrous economic shock of a shut down.

Why has eastern Europe suffered less from coronavirus than the west?
Most important reason for discrepancy appears to be implementation of early lockdown

The coronavirus map of Europe makes one thing clear: the richer nations of western Europe have suffered more from the virus than countries in the eastern half of the EU, almost without exceptions.

Comparing figures from different countries can be fraught with difficulty, and many factors can potentially skew the numbers. But the comparison between western Europe on the one hand, and central and eastern Europe on the other, shows a difference in coronavirus rates that is too stark to ignore.

Even the worst-hit central and eastern European countries have infection and death rates per million inhabitants much lower than western European nations, and in some the statistics are truly remarkable: Slovakia has recorded just 1,413 confirmed cases and 25 deaths. Neighbouring Austria, widely regarded as having tackled the challenge of the virus successfully, nevertheless has more than 10 times the number of infections and 20 times the deaths as Slovakia, with a population less than twice the size.

this to me is more scary than all the stats and if a mask works or not

if someone can catch it, recover
THAN it comes back a second time>>>
means we wont ever get rid of it and can only hope they can come up with a vaccine in the next year..
It had been over a month since Mirabai Nicholson-McKellar was infected with the coronavirus, and the 35-year-old filmmaker thought she was on her way to recovery. Then the shortness of breath came back, followed by chest pains

A visit to the emergency room and a second test for Covid-19 gave another positive result. Just three days earlier, she’d been cleared by health authorities in Australia’s New South Wales state, and was allowed to end her home quarantine after going 72 hours without symptoms.

“When is this going to end? I think about that constantly,” she said of the twists and turns in her health. “Am I still contagious? How do I know if I’m not contagious?

"A new genetic analysis of the virus that causes Covid-19 taken from more than 7,600 patients around the world shows it has been circulating in people since late last year, and must have spread extremely quickly after the first infection."
"This rules out any scenario that assumes SARSCoV-2 may have been in circulation long before it was identified, and hence have already infected large proportions of the population"

Probably part of the reason, plus higher population and a higher density of people living in the cities.

Add India , and Bangladesh into the equation and see how it looks.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
