While most of the world has fallen to the coronavirus and are under indefinite lockdowns, four countries seem to be doing better than the rest. Taiwan, Iceland, South Korea, and Germany have had the best successes in combating the virus. The common response by these countries was how quickly they implemented quarantine measures and monitored the situation. Also, they were prepared and ensured that people were getting properly tested with speedy results. While Germany has had the highest infection rate out of these four countries, their death toll has been surprisingly low. This is due to the country’s readiness for more than just the coronavirus by having over ten times the number of hospital beds and equipment ready to go than they normally use in a month.
