I live currently in Saudi Arabia, and what I noticed is that the Medical care in Saudi Arabia is much more advanced than many countries.
For Coronavirus, the authorities are not leaving anything for chance, they are taking the situation very seriously despite not having as many cases as other countries.
I am getting around 5–10 sms daily from authorities on what to do and what not to do, where to go and where not to go. They have launched a platform for home schooling and they are communicating with all layers of the community.
It is always better to prepare for the worst case scenario and getting ready with personnel and equipment. Corona is probably staying around for a while and what countries are trying to do is controlling the spread in away that does not exhaust resources and put additional pressure on utilities and medical centers.
One point is to give credit for the medical staff who are the front line in defending us as humans at this point.
