When the world stops turning

Lis­te­ned while wri­ting this post, try while rea­ding it :o)

This post is the fifth of a series of ten posts about cer­tain aspects of our lives during the COVID-19 cri­sis. These posts must be read in order, star­ting with the 6th post would make abso­lu­te­ly no sense to the rea­der. Enjoy rea­ding and above all, enjoy reflecting.

Along with these cha­rac­te­ris­tics, we must also consi­der eco­no­mic cri­te­ria and com­pa­rable wealth. Ano­ther cha­rac­te­ris­tic would be the gene­ral level of edu­ca­tion of the popu­la­tion. We could also consi­der Hofstede’s dimen­sions if suf­fi­cient data can be obtai­ned. These dimen­sions are power dis­tance, indi­vi­dua­lism vs col­lec­ti­vism, uncer­tain­ty avoi­dance, mas­cu­li­ni­ty vs femi­ni­ni­ty, long-term orien­ta­tion vs short-term orien­ta­tion and indul­gence vs restraint.

So, we have a list of aspects we can use to com­pare the evo­lu­tion of such a cri­sis, as well as the res­ponse to it. The cur­rent metrics of the cri­sis as fol­lo­wed by the media, and thus by the popu­la­tion, do not inter­est me. They serve as an input to our ana­ly­sis, but are at no point ele­ments of inter­pre­ta­tion. They show us the cultu­ral or poli­ti­cal res­ponse, but can­not be inter­pre­ted beyond this dimen­sion. For example, the num­ber of cases varies accor­ding to two aspects. The more tests car­ried out, the more posi­tive cases, and the­re­fore nega­tive cases. The ratio bet­ween nega­tive and posi­tive cases varies depen­ding on the cove­rage of tests car­ried out. If we tar­get this or that envi­ron­ment, or if we test eve­ry other per­son, etc.
