SL becomes second in terms of Covid-19 prevention measures, economic recovery

27 September 2020 05:32 pm - 8     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Sri Lanka has performed the second-best in terms of Covid-19 epidemic prevention measures, economic recovery and international cooperation out of 108 countries surveyed by the Yicai Research Institute in China.

China has ranked the first in the list. 

Nine out of the top 10 countries were in the Asia-Pacific region, namely South Korea, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Australia and New Zealand, while Ghana was in third place.

The Yicai Research Institute used the SEIR epidemiological model to predict the state of the pandemic in different nations, classing them as either Susceptible, Exposed, Infectious or Removed, as well as its own self-developed ‘social network-based virus transmission model.’

Countries with strict epidemic prevention policies, such as China, South Korea and Italy, all had the pandemic under control and logged less than one newly confirmed case in July, the models showed, which based their calculations on earlier disease trajectories and with the assumption that asymptomatic cases continued to be present.

    Nonsense. A listing of the country that is responsible for the fact that the virus was able to spread worldwide, putting itself in first place and its vassal in second place you really cannot believe. Both countries are dictatorships and suppress the truth.

    When I read the headlines, I could not believe it. Because almost all the international surveys have been done by the Western Countries for decades and clearly the West would never praise a non white country, let alone give it the second in the ranking table. Because it is done by China that we are getting the due recognition.

    Completely agree with you.

    China placing itself first is fishy. Yet, congrats Sri Lanka. Whether 2nd or not our handling has been excellent.
