Written by Marcin Grajewski,

The world is currently facing the fastest-spreading pandemic since the Spanish flu (in the aftermath of the First World War), prompting governments to take unprecedented decisions to contain this highly contagious coronavirus, which leads to COVID-19 infection. The measures taken include closing borders in some countries, encouraging telework as much as possible, and shutting schools, universities, restaurants and many other facilities, except for shops selling groceries, supermarkets and pharmacies. People are urged to stay at home and avoid physical contact with others. In a growing number of countries, confinement is being enforced.

This note offers links to recent commentaries and reports from international think tanks on the coronavirus and related issues. Earlier publications on the topic can be found in the previous item in the series, published on 11 March.

  1. Like I said in my post,as above on April 21,2020 at 17:53 pm,what the IMF/World Bank and the Pakistani state could not do for 73 years – COVID and my prophecy has ! dindooohindoo

    The CAD has crashed and will turn surplus in less than 5 months – as IRP (Islamic Republic of Pakistan is the only viable exporter,for several labour intensive and agri and animal husbandry products).It will be viable to fly camels and donkeys,to the world in 747s and C-130s for meat – it will occur soon !

    https://www.dawn.com/news/1562821/current-account-deficit-shrinks-a-whopping-73pc-to-under-3-billion-economic-survey-reveals

    The austerity which an Islamic state SHOULD have – BUT DID NOT – has come via COVID !

    This is the time to code austerity in the DNA of all subjects of Islamic states – which will also offset the Oil shock to Islamic economies

    It might be noted that 90% of the dead and 95% of the infected are in Christian nations !

    The next issue for IRP is the fiscal deficit – and for that also there is a solution !

    The disaster is for large populated nations,with higher cost manufacturing (w.r.t PRC) and large unskilled labour in manufacturing and agriculture.

    Which is India !

    We are witnessing the destruction of India – in slow motion !

    The IRP can give me a diplomatic passport and a posting in Geneva and USD 5 million !

    I will pray for them and solve all their problems

  3. It may seem crazy or a wild idea ..but i think this we can beat this virus…here is my idea …it flys in the face of everything thats is out there…and most people will dismiss this instantly..but ive got to put it out there because this is such a huge problem …on so many levels…
    What if instead of isolating everything and everyone and crippling the whole world on so many levels …
    We do the opposite…isolate and take care of the 10 -20 % of the population thays vulnerable….the other 80 -90 % get the mild symptoms….and contaminate each other ..and get sick in rounds like men going to war with this bug …a few thousand at a time …these after they recover repeat until we all get it …mild sympoms….until we have a lot of people that wont re infect others …that way we stop running from it ..and face it ..and keep the economies going …sorry it not a well thought out but if what there saying is true half of us are going to get it anyway so lets get it over with..before most of our lifes are ruined financially
