Greece Shows How to Handle the Crisis

The Covid-19 epidemic has exposed poor leadership and governance worldwide. From Spain to the U.K. to the U.S., politicians have waited far too long before taking the dramatic steps needed to protect their citizens.

Greece has been one noticeable — and perhaps surprising — exception to this trend. The government imposed severe social distancing measures at a much earlier stage of the epidemic than other southern European countries. For now, this swift reaction has helped Greece avoid the tragic healthcare crisis that richer states are facing.

The UK is not shown on the chart, but the death rate per million population is now between Italy and Spain and still on an upward curve.

Let's hope they don't ruin in all and start travelling to different areas for Easter.
