News is Italy has taken over China in terms of total number of deaths. Is that true? How could that possibly happen?
In South East Asia Indonesia has the highest number of deaths despite having low number of positive cases. This might due to the lack of high quality handling. I read on Twitter that it took about 3-5 days to do the test there when it took only few hours on some other countries.
This is hard man. I wish we all could follow Taiwan's ways of handling this.
The short answer is that Italy didn't lock down until the entire country was infected (and the medical system is overwhelmed so doctors have no choice but to choose who to cure), whereas China locked down the one province with the original outbreak and sent medical staff from the other provinces into that outbreak province. So you have a country's healthcare system supporting a province in China.
