News & Updates
The global pandemic has more than just concerns of health for one to take note of. It is true that the pandemic hit the surface of the planet without warning and when people were celebrating the New Year. It came in like a tsunami that scathed the lives of people around the planet. It is not just the physical health of people which is at risks. The economic and the political health of the world have also gone for a toss. The global economy is at an all-time low, and it is unfortunate to state that several nations have politicized the pandemic for their personal political agendas. On the flip side, several countries like Taiwan, Norway, Germany, New Zealand and Hong-Kong have successfully managed a crisis of this epic magnitude and helped restore normalcy in their economy. These nations, with efficient political leaders, have emerged as the torch-bearers of efficient crisis management. On this note, let us now have a look into how some governments have handled the crisis. It is essential to take stock of the political situation once a while and scrutinize those who lead us through the tough times. Have they fulfilled their roles well, or have some of these political leaders mismanaged the crisis? These are questions that we shall be looking into.
Political Leaders of Taiwan, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Germany Have Emerged as a Beacon of Hope:
The way these leaders have handled the pandemic is worth applauding. From restricting people’s movements, coming up with structured economic packages to enhancing the healthcare infrastructure- these leaders have emerged to become the true people’s leader. They have studied and pored over resources relentlessly, and taken wise counsel from their advisors to devise the best strategies for the people. And these ceaseless efforts have helped these nations to overcome the hurdles and flatten the curve significantly. Ramping up the testing procedures and contact-tracing have brought in efficiency in the system. The economy is recovering, and the rate of recovery of those few affected still, is quite high.
Mismanagement of the Crisis by Some Nations:
Though things look quite hopeful for the countries we mentioned in the earlier section, it is not the same for several other nations. And it shall be inane and irresponsible of us, if we were to ignore how some political leaders have mismanaged and politicized the pandemic to fuel their agendas. Some nations have seen a sharp drop in their GDP due to the insufficient economic packages meted out as solutions. A GDP drop of 23.9 per cent, the worst since a country’s independence, is extremely worrisome and the political leaders do not seem to have done great in handling the crisis. The state of the migrant workers in some third-world nations, insufficient testing and contact-tracing, and the lack of proper medical care equipment have led to the worsening of the health crisis in some of the nations like Brazil, parts of Africa and India, among several others.
The discussion proves that countries that have placed the health of their citizens as their priority have done exceptionally well in managing the pandemic. However, those who have not paid much attention to the seriousness of the pandemic and catered to their political motives first, have failed miserably. However, amidst all the hopelessness and political agendas, it is refreshing to see some political leaders prioritizing their countries’ healthcare and economy. It can thus, be stated that all hope is not lost and good things are underway.
With the ongoing US elections, there is only one thing that people around the world are looking into besides their daily updates of the pandemic. Is 2020 the last for the era of Donald Trump, or is he going to continue his run as the President of the United States for another term? Is a change incoming or will Donald Trump be the one to bring in fresh changes to the rules and regulation of the United States of America? The final verdict shall be out on November 3. However, before that, let us run you through all that we know so far about the US elections.
The Presidential Candidates:
The candidates for assuming the mantle of the POTUS are known to be faring well so far in this election. We have the Democratic Party’s nominee Joe Biden, challenging the present President of the United States Donald Trump, from the Republican Party. The tension in the air is real, and both of them have been doing great so far with their presidential campaigns. A fresh and welcoming move that we have noticed this time in the campaign is that of Kamala Harris being selected as the running mate for Joe Biden. Kamala Harris has South Asian roots, specific to India. And this move is hopeful of bringing in more inclusivity and expansion in the political milieu of America. Some Indians are also of the view that Kamala Harris being chosen as Biden’s running mate can channel a new and positive course for India’s relationship with America. Now, how far that is true remains to be seen if Biden happens to grab the winning spot.
Who is Leading, Who is Not:
Things are looking hopeful for Joe Biden in this battlefield. However, these are, what many would suggest, just the testing waters. There is still a very long time until November 3, and it does not take more than just the blink of an eye for things to change in the political landscape. And let us not forget that the person Joe Biden is competing against is Donald Trump. The Trump administration has yielded a farrago of reviews from the citizens and other politicians. The present POTUS has a massive following. And though there are instances of widespread dissent and failure of his government to handle some situations, he has emerged to become one of the most followed presidents in the history of the US.
In these initial and early stages, a change might seem to be underway. Joe Biden is leading the grounds with a significant margin. However, as we said, it is too soon to suggest anything or come up with a verdict. This is all the information that you need to wrap your heads around at this moment. What happens finally is for time to tell!
