How does your nation deal with viruses?

Postby Vallermoore » Fri Jan 24, 2020 9:47 am

If a dangerous virus appears in your nation, what is the government response to it? Does it...

cover the virus news up and pretend nothing is wrong?
impose quarantines on infected areas and send in nurses and doctors to treat people?
impose quarantines on infected areas until everyone has healed or died but without sending in any medical assistance?
actively kill the infected to stop the disease?
some other way of dealing with it?

Killing the infected to stop the disease is something that Minoa isn't doing in response to the Novel Coronavirus: and it’s also illegal. The world of Minoa isn’t 28 Days Later.

Our response was to direct all flights from Wuhan to a dedicated gate at Athens Solihull Airport, and provide advice, support and medical attention to those that feel unwell. My mind is a bit blurry, but it is understood that China has quarantined Wuhan, which has halted flights from that city to Athens.

Because of Rwizikuru's poor development, while we are trying our best to deal with them, we won't be as successful in dealing with viruses as a more developed nation.

When dealing with viruses, the situation can vary however the national government maintains various protocols for decades ever since the establishment of the PRZ. Regarding contagious airborne viruses such as the 2009 swine flu pandemic or the 2019–20 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak, the Ministry of Health would keep citizens up to date on any potential cases of infected individuals in the country and keep a close observation on the contagious virus. Not only that, MoH would establish guidelines on avoiding getting infected and what to do if infected, as well as providing other information and raising awareness regarding any virus that might pose a threat to public health. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Transportation together with the Ministry of Territorial Affairs would keep an eye out on any mass movement of people entering the nation especially through customs & immigration, and if an outbreak in another country is already enough to pose a massive threat, the MoT can suspend travel to Zhouran from that nation. For example, during the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak, the MoT suspended any flights from Mainland China to Zhouran, meanwhile the MoTA works together with the MoH in maintaining and securing Zhouran's highly-strict biosecurity, in order to protect the health of the people, fauna and flora of the nation from outside diseases.

If there is a large-scale viral outbreak within Zhouran, the Ministry of Health together with both the Ministry of National Emergency and Ministry of Defense would rapidly mobilize assets to deal with the virus and contain it, thus mobile field hospitals from the MoH, MoNE, and the Zhouranese People's Army would be quickly set up in affected areas.

Ever since The Kangmukeli and political-hardliners took power in 2027, the nation's already-strict biosecurity became even more strict while any viral outbreaks in other nations are treated as potential existential-threats to the Zhouranese People & Nation. There has been rumors both within Zhouran and abroad that political-hardliners send biohazard death-squads to any outbreak hotspots around the world and eliminate individuals with any contagious diseases before incinerating corpses and villages with incendiary weaponry including napalm explosives and thermobaric weapons. While the political-hardline establishment strongly denies these rumors, with Senior Marshal Tanrong Aisun (current Premier of the Central Council since 2027) describing them as "mere political-fiction fantasies created by delusional tinfoil-hat wearers, greasy basement dwellers and low-life armchair-experts", the political-moderates on the other hand claim existence of these rumors using reports from supposed eyewitnesses.

Extensive healthcare is only reserved for the upper SS. The lower SS gets no healthcare at all apart from proper vaccinations, and the "proles" (Aryan and non-Aryan workers) get only very trivial healthcare at most. Hospitals are only there to treat injuries and do not possess any resources to combat any diseases. Since our system is dedicated towards wiping out the weak, nobody really reserves the right to proper healthcare in case of an illness. However, in case of a mass epidemic, civilian hospitals work at maximum capacity with adequate supplies provided as soon as possible and military hospitals open up to civilians. Cities are not quarantined and don't need to be since they're already systematic work camps where no one gets to leave. Infected non-Aryans are still not allowed to have healthcare, though.

Anyone affected during a pandemic will be quarantined and treated. If it is an outbreak and considered a major public health risk then this will extend even to people who are not covered by private health insurance and even to non-citizens - the government will pay healthcare costs as such a scenario would be considered a national security event and therefore can be paid for out of various emergency budgets.

If a source of a virus was known (i.e. it's coming from a specific country) then the government could consider a) compulsory vaccinations for anyone travelling from that location and closely monitor people from affected areas or if this is impossible and the situation is dire then it might even b) ban incoming travel from that location.

There's also a high chance that private corporations would race as fast as they can to be the first to develop and patent a cure - because just think of all the money they can rake in and all the good publicity it would generate if there was a brand affiliate with a drug saving lives in a pandemic?

It usually depends on the individual states, as the federal government holds no direct policy beyond mandating vaccinations. Thanks the blood, sweat and tears of our ancestors, many once deadly diseases that plagued humanity are long gone. Still, the evolutionary arms race that is life promises that there will always be a new bug around the corner. Thus the federal government encourages the states to fund research into what made ancient American medical technology and knowledge so potent.

Depends on the disease. If it's smallpox, quarantine and identify the strain. If necessary, begin ring vaccinations. If it's something with cold or flu-like symptoms, there's a very close eye kept on it. If it's unknown, quarantine and commence full-scale lockdowns to try and put a preventative stranglehold on the spread. In all cases, doctors and nurses are sent in to try treating the disease as best they can.

If it is going to be a crisis, the exact second we catch wind every single man, woman, child, and infant along with every know and everyone they know that is so much as searching us online starts getting tracked. If we catch a single case, we'll be able to pounce on it with lightning speed and ruthless efficiency because we'll know who to follow up with.

Healthcare and welfare for all inhabitants of Ayucuyli is the administration's priority, as of now expending twenty-three percent of the nation's gross domestic product in those departments. However, acknowledging the weaknesses of our economy, regular expenditure, depending on the persistence of the disease, may not be able to stop the virus. Therefore, in the case of national emergency, the Ministry of Defense (in which covert state agencies are included) is summoned to (coercively if necessary) relocate and quarantine the infected in the isle of Uyilisi until the proper cure has been developed. This practice is nothing new for the nomadic peoples of Ayucuyuli and has been historically used to deal with other plagues. Most medical research faculties are concentrated in the harbor-city of Karyesze and thus we can ensure that when a cure is developed, it will be transferred to the infected immediately, due to the proximity of the two places. As mentioned in Ayucu legislature, the state may not be able to guarantee human rights to the infected, and the infected will be typically expected to survive on their own with what they have at their disposal in the isle.

Generally speaking, you need authorization from the ruling party (PRM) to leave your municipality even under regular conditions, furthermore vaccines are mandatorily (i.e. forcibly) administered to the population.

In case of an outbreak, the infected area is generally quarantined, intensifying restrictions on freedom of movement. Aside from PRM authorization (which, in case of outbreak, will be frequently denied), a medical checkup is required to leave the area. Police and MGB patrols intensify as well. Furthermore, the state will send medical personnel from the main cities to the infected area with the presumably necessary protections (including distribution of hazmat suits) to prevent new infections within medical personnel. In serious cases, express training of extra medical personnel begins outside the infected area, targets usually being professionals specialized in other medical branches.

In case of a virus of foreign origin, all travel from and to that nation is immediately banned. Frequently, notifying the local population is not even necessary, as exit visas can be legally denied without explanation.

If possible, the Mainframe would likely attempt to cure or vaccinate for the disease.
If not, they would likely impose quarantines and send in no medical aid, killing (or as they call it, "repurposing") anyone who attempts to leave.
The Mainframe requires more processing power and storage.

It would probably quarantine the affected areas and send in medical personnel to treat the infected and develop a cure/vaccination if possible.

If its a serious pandemic them ports and airports would be closed and martial law would be declared. Carsinthia has a large network of underground bunkers which houses things such as warehouses, armories and hospitals usually in case of foreign invasions but they could also be used to help deal with the disease. Everyone who has completed their National Service are reservist and would be called on to help contain the situation. The government may take drastic measures such as body burning but they probably wouldn't execute anyone.

If an outbreak were to occur, it would be contained to a single Hive; internal movements are tightly controlled and citizens may not leave their Hive without official permission (cf. the Soviet internal passport system). Furthermore, civil rights and morality are completely ignored as they are seen as obstacles to progress and profit. So if push came to shove, for us it would be better to kill 100 healthy men than let a single sick man walk free.
The brainchild of a former war criminal, Apiary One started out as a population experiment. By harnessing free labor, it brought in massive profits to its creator, who used the cash to build up a luxurious capital city and attract foreign investment. This in turn generated more wealth, allowing the nation to develop into a marvelous masterpiece of progress and efficiency. But there's a darker side that they don't want you to see...

HM Government Observes the following protocols.
1. Increase Level of alert at Airports and Seaports.

2.Quarintine of the infected, evaluation of the virus, Secure infection zones

3.Intitate programs to develop cure/Vaccination/Medicine, Treat the Infected

4.Distribute Products/Treat the Infected

The 2003 SARS Epidemic saw quarantine of some Mcnernian and Kaisongese nationals.

The 2013-2016 Ebola virus saw Mcnernian epidemiological personnel successfully deployed to Africa. Including a Hospital Ship of HM Mcnernian Royal Navy to provide advanced facilities.

Mcnernian troops operating under Agreement with the United Nations as part of MONUSCO provided security in Ebola hit conflict zones. CBRN troops operated in support of UN and WHO Personnel as per the New York Treaty.

The 2019-2020 Wuhan epidemic is of concern. HM Government is investigating as legally and safely as possible allegations that the Peoples Republic of China has a bioweapons facility in the area. All flights out of the area are immeadiately diverted to Air Force instillations for quarantine. So Far this protocol has not be implemented.

Redwynd believes the most effective way of dealing with a new virus is to impose quarantine and send in professionals to help the affected. While the economy takes a hit by using taxpayer dollars to fund this initiative, we could ask for donations to help alleviate that burden. The quarantine will help prevent the virus from spreading to other areas and those affected will receive the care they need. Our medical professionals will also be able to study and potentially develop immunizations for the virus that may help in the advent of a future outbreak.
