The whole world has seen the wrath of COVID-19. Nations are scrambling left and right to contain the virus and have met mixed results. While other countries continue to see a rise in cases, some are seeing a steady decline, with other nations like New Zealand already operating normally with heightened safety protocols. Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Francisco Duque III said on May 20 that the Philippines has flattened the curve, but some studies and some senators say otherwise.
You either think the situation in the country is improving or it’s only getting worse, but it helps to look at how neighboring countries are doing against COVID-19. This graph from Earth Shaker Philippines collates data from the DOH and Worldometer to show where the Philippines stands next to other South East Asian nations when it comes to flattening the curve.
Check it out:
The graph covers data from March 1 until June 15 and includes all 10 countries in South East Asia. Indonesia tops the list with 21,973 active cases and a rise in cases.
