Russians should learn: Named the factors of low mortality from the virus in Germany

The coronavirus pandemic is raging in the world, and different countries cope with this scourge differently. Noteworthy, in particular, is the example of Germany.

So, in the Federal Republic of Germany on April 9, 2020, about 111 thousand cases of infection with COVID-19 and 2,2 thousand deaths were recorded. While the figures for other countries look more depressing: in Italy for 140 thousand patients - almost 18 thousand deaths, in France this ratio is 82/11, in Spain - 152 / 15,2. In the USA, nearly 2 thousand people die during the day - almost as many as died during the entire epidemic in Germany. What explains the success of the Germans in the fight against this ailment?

Experts identify several main components: the discipline of the population, the specifics of the spread of the virus and the level of the health care system in Germany.

In Germany, COVID-19 is, first of all, a disease of relatively young people, the average age of those affected is 49 years. And with age, human immunity decreases, which explains the increased mortality rate from the virus in elderly people.

As early as March 18, Chancellor Angela Merkel urged residents of the country to strictly observe quarantine measures, and the Germans listened, trying unnecessarily to not leave their homes and at the same time minimizing social contacts. This behavior of citizens of Germany contrasts with how at the beginning of the epidemic residents of other countries - in particular, Russia, behaved when crowds of Muscovites went to barbecue parks.

It should be noted that in Germany civil society is very developed and the level of social responsibility is very high. Add to this German pedantry and from childhood the grafted order not to break the rules, and we have the most comfortable environment for overcoming the virus epidemic. Citizens of Germany really observe the social distance (in Germany it is 2 meters) in grocery stores, and even on the sidewalks, sometimes bypassing the person walking towards them.

We should learn from our German colleagues.

In addition, the pandemic was an exam on the quality of German medicine, and it withstands this test “perfectly”.

    Named the factors of low mortality from the virus in Germany

    First of all, it takes a different approach to statistics. In Italy, everyone is recorded in the death toll from the coronavirus, there is another extreme - the "Belarusian" model. The Germans are somewhere in between, they are in no hurry to blame all deaths on the virus. If we are to put anyone as an example, it is probably Austria, they are prepared and are doing better.

    - It's strange .., in Germany there are more than two million migrants from Asian and African countries ... - And how did this problem superimpose on "today's problems" ... - Is everything really so smooth ???
    - Germany, most likely - is cunning and does not cover exactly this side of the problem of the coronavirus epidemic ...

      Well, the attempts of migrants to leave the camp and go in the evening were stopped by the police, and with the help of massacre.

      Come take a look. Of course, not everything is going smoothly, but work is being done everywhere. By the way, immigrants from Russia and the former USSR countries have every chance of becoming a special risk group, due to their special "freedom-loving" and carelessness.
      A positive difference from Russia, approximately the same level of medical care both in the centers and in the periphery. If this "flu" breaks out from the capitals into the Russian peripheral expanses, then it’s gone. There, the line of defense against the virus, if not absent at all, is very weak.

    Here, most likely, the discipline of local residents. And not the least role is played by the attitude to one’s own life. And still amazing. There are so many migrants in Germany.

      Everything is relative. For example, the Turks, who have been living here for a long time, have long been barking for their own and about different newcomers, they also have very different opinions.

    But it is true in the comments, either the emigrants are not at all as terrible as the urya-media write, or they are not taken into account.

    And about medicine - no specifics. Type is excellent, and all.

    In Europe, everything is bad. So they decided to praise at least someone. And whom to praise, if not Germany? Not France ...

      The French, as a sea country, are connected with both the Spaniards and Italians across the sea a little closer than the Germans, and they did not get sickly.

    What should the Germans learn from? They have 111 thousand dead per 2.2 thousand infected, and we have 12 dead per 94 thousand infected. Simple arithmetic shows that our mortality rate is 2.5 times lower.

      and we have 12 dead for 94 thousand infected.

      This is where there is official accounting. And where there is no, there is no and no court. But there is, of course, the option that the level of medical care throughout the country is approximately equal to Moscow or Leningrad.

        In Russia, all figures related to coronavirus are official, I hope in Germany, too.

          Normally, these figures are also collected and controlled by various independent institutions from different countries and the EU.
          Sometimes there are small inaccuracies, depending on the source and the real time of publication, but in general, everything works.

    Well, so they will soon agree to the fact that it was the USSR that attacked fascist Germany and that fascist Germany defeated the USSR.
    Eh, it was not necessary to leave Europe and unite Germany, and there would be nothing of this!
    It was not enough for the defeated countries to show the victorious country how to behave and what to do!
    They need to speak with Russia in a quiet voice, kneeling and bowing their heads, and only when we ask them, because they are alive only because we allow them to.

      winner country ...

      Yes, there were actually 15 countries, and this was only part of the USSR. yes

      ... they are alive only because we allow them.

      In the present tense, they are threatening. fool
      Maybe a sedative drink and a smaller radical press to read, you look and feel better. Potatoes may need to be planted, what seedlings to get, repair the fence. Soothing. hi
      It was necessary to wail earlier when the HMS with EBN to the Americans about the dismantling of the countries-winners in the race reported running and destroyed the economy. recourse

      As for the virus, it’s on the drum, in which country to commit atrocities. Whether she is a winner or not, everyone is equal to him. Which will be able to defend faster and more efficiently, that will defeat him. Some slogans can not do here. Why not adopt more effective and better acting examples and implement them yourself. Without tantrums and tears. good
