    It’s intriguing that these graphs show a selection of countries which are Euro, Asian and Nth American centric and then only a few really. The graphs are also Northern Hemisphere centric.

    Can we assume that Africa, Middle East, India, S.E. Asia, South America and Australia just don’t matter?

    The Note does say: Only selected countries shown. Fair enough, but what are the selection criteria?

    Perhaps a graph of regions would be interesting:

    (1) China & Mongolia
    (2) North East Asia excluding China (Japan, the Koreas, Taiwan,
    (3) S.E. Asia (the rest of east Asia excluding the above).
    (4) Indian sub-continent
    (5) Middle East
    (6) Africa
    (7) Europe
    (8) Russia and Central Asia
    (9) North America
    (10) South America
    (11) Oceania

    “Oceania is a geographic region that includes Australasia, Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. Spanning the Eastern and Western Hemispheres, Oceania has a land area of 8,525,989 square kilometers (3,291,903 sq mi) and a population of over 47 million. Situated in the southeast of the Asia-Pacific region, Oceania, when compared to continental regions, is the smallest in land area and the second smallest in population after Antarctica.” – Wikipedia.

    I add the last because the Oceania region may be less well known than the others.

    After watching the novel corona graphs posted here become become full of individual countries, this graph is a welcome factoring that brackets national successes and failures in a way that helps me see those countries that tend toward barbaric capitalism vs those that behave more like farmers tending their crops with care and a long view of successful business.

    It is true that the countries with ability to control their epidemics are still committed to destroying life on Earth via economic growth. Hopefully those who have the ability to act in a time of epidemic will become equally proactive about helping humanity gain the wisdom to restore Earth’s health before it is too late.

    The best way to gauge an advanced culture with a chance for survival is how it the foundation culture farms; chemicals used and soil loss are the best report card I know. Asia is in as bad a shape as other countries in this regard. At this time it appears to me that large state and private corporate agriculture will lead to extinction in the next ten years or so and this graph may indicate some chance that some countries will be able to respond to the crises of soil loss and chemical poisoning of Earth. This graph tells me that the US, England and France are suicidal.

    Garrett Connelly,

    Yes, and living in an ignored region (Oceania) teaches me that big places don’t care about small places. Big majorities don’t care about small minorities. But in the case of Oceania being ignored is the greatest attribute of our region. If the rest of the world forgets us and leaves us alone we just might survive. Me writing about this will make no difference. We will still be ignored, thank goodness.
