COVID-19 pandemic is one of the worst things that has happened to humanity. Many people have lost their lives and many are still fighting it whereas the governments are doing what they can to prevent the situation from getting worse. The virus spread like a wildfire earlier this year and is still continuing to show its effects to this day.
Many governments took immediate action and had preventive measures set in place to have their countries keep safe from the plague. The most efficient and globally praised countries who handled the coronavirus pandemic were South Korea, Vietnam, and Taiwan for their mass testing implementation and efficient tracing and isolation strategies. New Zealand was the first country to declare itself a COVID-free country.
While many countries did well to avoid the dangers, other countries were criticized to handle the situation poorly mainly by implying the lockdown later, when the situation got worse. The UK and US were the top countries who were criticized by their own locals. Both of these countries are currently the worse hit countries in the world. Previously, that title was held by Italy and Spain but through their strict lockdown implementations, the situation has gotten under control until the summer break when infection rates are growing a medium to high rate again.
In these testing times, public opinion matters and people around different countries were asked about their government and how well they handled the situation. There were mixed reviews from most of the countries whereas, the people in a few countries were happy that their government did well to contain the situation. Few people had positive things to say, many had negative things and it was an informative survey.
Take a look at the results of the survey in the infographic below.
