On January 30 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global health emergency on the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19). Healthcare experts have warned that Covid-19 could rapidly spread, if not properly contained, and many governments around the world have begun to take precautionary measures to ensure public health safety. After two years since the outbreak, how are different countries coping with the pandemic? What are the lessons drawn in the international community?
