COVID-19 Stories

In my opinion, most people are handling the quarantine well.

Everything has closed now except essential businesses.  The government made the decision to halt international flights just in time, although it could have been done earlier.

Most citizens seem to have taken the risk seriously. Civil servants at risk (pregnant women and older people) do not have to go to work.We hope that it does not lead to losing their jobs. Private companies and other government officials continue to work with caution (masks)

We hope that the confinement does not become nationwide and for too long, since it is not at all clear how the most vulnerable groups in our society would manage. There does not appear to be a clear medium, or long-term policy on how to help the most vulnerable groups cope with the effects of long-term confinement.
