COVID-19: International Response - what has worked?

Posted by KSharpe on Mar 25, 2020 5:13 pm

In addition to collating ideas on the UK's engineering and technological response to COVID-19 we are keen to learn from the rest of the world's experiences in this fight so far.

As an organisation with members across the globe we are perfectly placed to tap into your knowledge and insights to guide our Governments actions so this is a call for you to share your experiences and case studies of the engineering and technological interventions that have been tired globally
 
  • What do you think has worked elsewhere?
  • What has been tried and made an impact?
  • What is being trialed currently in your country?
Additionally, if you would like to volunteer your expertise to the Government's response to COVID-19 please email SEP@theiet.org

What works, what not works,...it's not about engineering advice...it's medical advice to fight for the COVID-19... 
Wash hands, wear a mask, social distance, home office (our government takes the initiative to home office), entertainment facilities to close, limit operating hours of restaurants,...
Response from Hong Kong...

Here is an interesting idea from Milan, Italy.

CORONA Virus panic
Look at this website. https://lnkd.in/euN_stt       If this info is correct then we must stop the panic immediately. Under 1 in a thousand deaths is insignificant in global terms BUT to wreck world economies is ruinous and will cause millions of destitute, homeless and poor people to die of starvation but not the virus. #economy #climatechange#global #tradewar #cargo #shipments #coronaviruspanic .  Let God decide who will live and who will die, thats my opinion.

If you care about money, and not about people, then I suppose around 7.8 million people dying isn't really important in the grand scale of things. 

But that assumes the figure of 1 in 1000 is correct.  Without proper medical treatment, it's likely to be more like 1 in 100, so that would be 78 million dead.  But I suppose those people still aren't important if all that bothers you is keeping the economy going.
