While Covid-19 has killed so many people in U.S, Italy, UK and Iran, in Iraq, Egypt, Kuwiat, and Sudan the body count is fewer than 200. Why Does the Virus Wallop Some Places and Spare Others?, the New York Times inquires.
According to the report, Experts are trying to figure out why the coronavirus is so capricious. The answers could determine how to best protect ourselves and how long we have to.
The Dominican Republic has reported nearly 7,600 cases of the virus. Just across the border, Haiti has recorded about 85.
In Indonesia, thousands are believed to have died of the coronavirus. In nearby Malaysia, a strict lockdown has kept fatalities to about 100.
The question of why the virus has overwhelmed some places and left others relatively untouched is a puzzle that has spawned numerous theories and speculations but no definitive answers. That knowledge could have profound implications for how countries respond to the virus, for determining who is at risk and for knowing when it’s safe to go out again, said the newspaper.
