Germany's leadership never called the virus fake or a hoax.

Germany never fails to impress. That is what a superpower should be about, "success in dealing with a crisis situation" not having the most powerfull army

why Germany death rate is so low.... spend money on health care and development not military.... and ignore the clown in the white house raving about the 2% military spending...

As a doctor working in Germany, they’ve prepared us for the crisis scientifically and emotionally before it even began. Almost every hospital created a corona unit “Station”.. They trained almost all the doctors to work with the ventilators even it’s not your speciality. They continuously updated us with guidelines on how to deal with corona patients, how to protect yourself and your team and how to take the right medical decision at the right time. Other than that like she said, I’ve seen everybody outside the hospital sticking to the safety and hygienic measures, social distancing and disinfecting. I personally think that Germany makes a great model in beating corona. 🇩🇪🇩🇪 🇩🇪

Japan has low deaths but didn't have massive testing. Testing is good but if you don't have the capacity, you can still beat the virus by prevention methods.
