(IC) What has your country done to prevent COVID-19?

Postby New Jeromia » Thu May 06, 2021 10:12 pm

I haven't seen a thread on this surprisingly, but as the title says, this thread will be about what your nation has done and is continuing to do to stop the virus. Please don't post here if your country isn't facing the issue.

New Jeromia first started reporting a few cases in March of 2020. Numbers were small and centered in the Southeast of the country. The capital city of Givozo was originally hit the hardest, and they shut down unnecessary businesses on March 21st. 2 days later, on the 23rd, enough cases had been reported in other parts of the country that the federal government ordered all unnecessary businesses to be shut down, and unnecessary access to the country was cut. For both of these incidents, there was a 2 day grace period. When the whole country shut down, the first ever nation-wide activation of the JeromiAlert emergency warning system was initiated. This would set off everyone's phones, tv's, radios, and emergency sirens would sound. This ended up causing unnecessary panic in some places, and people flocked to grocery stores making supplies run low. Though the government expected this to some extent, supplies were still low and relief funds would help out lower income areas in getting food and medical supplies.

On April 4th, the government announced that schools could reopen in areas with low levels of transmission. This was considered a risky move but with precautions such as physical distancing, mask wearing, and frequent hand washing, it was considered feasible. Most schools slowly phased in hybrid learning and eventually full-time in-person learning. Over the summer cases went down, with international travel still being banned, and by the fall some areas eased up on mask mandates and other precautions. On September 11th, the federal government made a requirement for all school districts to resume at least hybrid learning by October 12th, citing low cases in schools and lower community spread. Winter of 2020 experienced some increase in cases but nothing too bad. In fact, on January 4th, the government put out another requirement for schools to resume full-time learning by February 8th. This was extended to the 22nd due to a surge in cases.

Beginning in January, vaccines were made available for healthcare workers, emergency responders, teachers, and other high-risk workers. On the 18th, it was made available to everyone over the age of 60. This was reduced by 10 years every week with new vaccines coming in, with the last group of everyone over 16 years old being eligible on the 22nd of February. The government had placed 300 million orders of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, and a limited number of J&J vaccines for applications where it would be easier to give 1 shot instead of 2. Starting on May 10th, ages 12 and up will be eligible, and the vaccine will be required in public schools for the 2021-2022 school year.

So that's pretty much the whole story. New Jeromia has been really lucky compared to other countries, so let me know what you've faced.

Lol, I was trying to be realistic, but yeah it kinda sounds like it could be a real story I guess. It’s not really inspired by any other country though.

OOC: OP, you should put "IC" in the thread title. Otherwise, people might think it's about their RL nation.



Before the coronavirus pandemic, imperial governors had great leeway to rule their provinces however they liked, subject to the Emperor's oversight. Some governors decided to impose lockdowns and close businesses to slow infection rates. But the Emperor was furious—those measures had a profound impact on the entertainment and hospitality industries, which he himself had a great vested interest in (the Emperor personally owns a chain of hotels and casinos)—and ordered the governors to open everything up. Ever since, there haven't been any government restrictions at all.

As for private businesses, they may enforce any restrictions they want. But as of this week, "essential businesses" (restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies, etc.) may no longer require masks as a condition of service. This policy change was made after Princess Lucía (daughter of the Emperor and heir to the imperial throne) and a group of friends were denied entry at a fancy restaurant, because they weren't wearing masks.

Due to the Emperor's hedonist mentality and reckless downplaying of the coronavirus, the Spanish Empire has seen more than 450,000 deaths. But he isn't fazed at all by those numbers, claiming that he's had the disease and turned out fine.
I RP as the Spanish Empire.

also that planet is not overcrowded by but the sapients who do live and evolve here, unlike earth and its humans.

mask, distance and hygiene are of course logical precautions should zootic diseases appear,

Esthe’s COVID outbreak started a bit later than other nations, with the first few cases being reported in May. It’s leader immediately locked down the country, and required a 14-day quarantine for people returning from other nations. Thanks to this, the nation nipped COVID in the bud, and is strongly encouraging other nations to instate mask mandates and social distancing. Esthe has also created a vaccine that it is distributing around The North Pacific.

Nothing at all

The nations poor people were ravaged by the pandemic, while those with access to the highly advanced medical sector were almost guaranteed survival.
The economy gains massively by producing great amounts of vaccines to sell abroad, as well as inside the state. Fast vaccine roll out puts an end to the pandemic

Covid emerged nearly 20 years ago in our timeline, so we have to take a trip back in time for this.

Pulsroth's then Supreme Minister, Meri McMillan, wasted no time locking down our country's land and sea borders as soon as the virus began taking hold in Russia, our nearest neighbour by land.

Some 14,000 cases were eventually recorded in Pulsroth, with around 300 deaths, most of which occurred around the capital, Forsinard. Due to McMillan's rapid action in locking down the borders, we never had a need for widespread face masks or social distancing, and life outside of Forsinard went on largely as normal.

Crossoveria does not want any COVID cases in our nation. To prevent that from happening, we closed down the entire nation, not letting anyone in or anyone out. We forced people who were feeling sick to stay at home, and we mandated social distancing and mask wearing in our nation.

When China detected COVID-19, Zhouran's Ministry of Health communicated closely with Chinese counterparts and strongly recommended to the stratocratic leadership to prepare for a potential global outbreak. As a result, Zhouran was the first country to close down its borders. Meanwhile, guidelines from the MoH were publicly released and people were told to follow protocols such as social distancing, wearing a mask, and avoid congregating in public. The MoH, along with the Zhouranese People's Army and Ministry of National Emergency, were strongly prepared for the virus, and thanks to this rigorous level of preparedness, Zhouran only managed to have 321 cases with zero deaths. The last case was back in late September of 2020, and since then there has been no new cases in Zhouran. Not only that, the Ministry of Transportation together with the Ministry of Territorial Affairs allowed the resumption of flights, though only flights between Zhouran and China were resumed.

Currently, researchers in Zhouran are closely working together with Chinese, Russian and European counterparts in COVID research. Zhouran is currently the third largest COVID vaccine producer after China and the US and is the second largest COVID vaccine donator following China. Despite the last COVID case in Zhouran happening in late September of 2020, the Zhouranese government still place strict protocols in the country, though with some loosening up of a few rules. Face mask and social distancing are still mandatory, although there is no longer restrictions on public congregation since February 23 of this year. Thanks to Zhouran's centralized socialist system, the government did not hesitate to act fast during the early days of the COVID outbreak. As a result, when China discovered COVID-19, the Zhouranese did not ignore the virus the same way the US did. Not only that, the US early on did not implement good measures for fighting COVID due to fears of economic decline from lockdown, while Zhouran implemented lockdowns early on due to human lives being more precious than profit. Thus, by the end of 2020, Zhouran was one of two major economies that was facing strong economic growth (the other being China of course), while the US economy is on a steep decline.

At first, we decided that everyone entering Sherechia must undergo a 14-day quarantine before they can explore the country but this didn't work as Sherechia's borders are very porous and someone managed to sneak in with the virus.

So the next thing we did is implement a soft lockdown:
-Some schools close while others run at 30% capacity
-Some offices close while others run at 30% capacity
-Shops and other workplaces mostly open though run at 30% capacity
-Mask wearing
-Keep distance
-No mass gatherings
-Contact tracing

We also use several unused buildings and convert them into extra hospital beds and quarantine rooms

If cases keep going up and hospital occupancy crosses 60% there will be a 2-4 week hard lockdown in which everything apart from grocery stores and pharmacies are closed.

So this is kind of how Indonesia deals with the virus, I feel like it's a good compromise between controlling the virus and saving the economy. You can meet your loved ones or go on vacations... just don't be stupid.

Then once vaccines available, vaccinate as many people as quickly as possible.

Fjaldar reported its first cases of COVID-19 in June of 2020. The government of the country immediately declared a state of emergency and went into complete lockdown, also beginning to develop a COVID vaccine and tests. The first death, that of 65-year-old Baldric Ackarmann, occurred on September 22, by which time tests and vaccines were beginning to roll out to the general populace. As of May 2021, approximately 96% of the population have been fully vaccinated. The government announced a partial reopening of the country due to declining COVID cases in January of 2021, but forbade travel outside of the island and mainland Europe. The country fully reopened in late April, but continued to advise against nonessential travel.

It's 1995 in sunny Roegerland, so there's no such thing.

Having said that, if there were, the nation's borders, airports, and seaports would be closed to non-essential travellers and the government would seek to secure vaccines. No other measures would be put in place.

Although there are no COVID-19 cases in Cavirfi, the Ministry of Health has required the quarantine of all immigrants from Estima starting March 15, when COVID-19 there worsened because of the 2nd RG War. Cavirfite Businesses have also started giving bottles of MEDICAL alcohol as a secondary salary to an employee's primary monetary salary. Lastly, the military has started using their frigates as hospitals IN CASE COVID-19 hits Cavirfi.
