WELCOME TO EDITION 780 of GRAPEVINE
Per head of population, Singapore has one of the highest Covid infections in the world.
At just 5.5 million people – yesterday Sunday 19 July 2020 – the city state was 47,912 cases.
The USA – with a population of 325 million – was 3,712,604 cases.
America has 59 times more people than Singapore.
Accordingly, if the population were the same, Singapore would have the equivalent of 2,826,808 infections.
Brazil – the second highest total infections in the world –at 2,074,860 has 212 million people.
Brazil has 38.5 times the population of Singapore.
If the population were the same, Singapore would have the equivalent of 1,844,612 infections.
Taiwan – population 23 million – has just 451 cases.
Based on sheer results and effectiveness, it may not be a bad idea to contract out Singapore’s battle against Covid to the Taiwanese.
Wishing you A Very Good Week Ahead.
