It seems the district of Kastoria has the highest percentage of cases in Greece (about 0,54 per thousand people). Elis and Athens come next with about half the number.

Mind you, Greece already has an official problem, we don't have enough test kits, so we don't even bother to check the number of cases. This is a problem in general. You shouldn't compare countries based on the number of reported cases. We should just focus on the number of deaths.

''Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis President James Bullard predicted the U.S. unemployment rate may hit 30% in the second quarter because of shutdowns to combat the coronavirus, with an unprecedented 50% drop in gross domestic product.''

Gocka..I tend to agree with you, the Americans seem to come to the party a little late in most cases but...

The Soviets were the first to put a man into space but the Americans put a man on the moon and ended the space race before the moon-dust had settled around Armstrong's boots...

The Yanks entered WWII after dragging their arse around for a while only to end it by vaporising Japs by the tens of thousands ...

When shit needs to be done, nobody can throw the kitchen sink at the problem like the US can...when I hear people (mostly women) trying to tear down the Donald and gloat about how the US (under his leadership) will face an existential (corona virus) crisis...I just remind them of the US's unique ability to get shit done when the proverbial hits the fan...

Plot twist, the magnets destroyed the virus.

One of my favorite historical quotes is from Churchill regarding the USA, “Americans can always be trusted to do the right thing, once all other possibilities have been exhausted.”

Always late, kicking and screaming the whole way, but they do have a special way of pulling together minds and resources to make things happen when they choose to. They have already come up with a 5 minute covid-19 test. Johnson and Johnson is doing human testing on a vaccine in September. A few companies are working on therapeutics in the mean time.

The USA is like a wild beast that is difficult to tame (democracy), it is their source of strength and also its weakness. Had they put everything into defeating the virus 2 months ago, the whole world would probably have been spared. But all the voices and interests make sure that everything stays log-jammed until it gets to a critical point. Then the beast gets unleashed and things actually happen very quickly and efficiently.

Its quite frustrating actually to witness and be a part of. Sometimes you wish you could just slam the fist down and rule by decree, it has its uses in these kind of moments. In the long run you realize if you want democracy in good times, then you need to tolerate its inefficiency in times of crisis.

I'm not sure if I'm reading this correctly. Did Phoenix just say that the evil Americans are capable of doing something right?

Its not inefficiency, its working through the best possible solution. China is the epitome of inefficiency. If they allowed free speech and dissent they would have been on top of this when those first doctors discovered it.

I do think Australia might be the first to develop a vaccine, if Macedonia hasn't already.

We did win the swine flu vaccine race:

Unfortunately, the Americans had to wait until we had produced enough for us.
