3xT, "TRACK(&TRACE), TEST! and TREAT" in a nutshell is the slogan in the successful fight against the corona pandemic. Certain Asian countries are taking the lead and delivering the successful model with massively fewer people falling ill. Yes, the economic damage is great. However, it is far smaller than in Europe and the USA, where the #Corona crisis is also overwhelmingly a crisis of democracy and the neo-liberal state order.
In terms of implementation, this means:
1. the #tracing app must be mandatory.
2. multiple testing procedures must be made available, and the population must be guided to use and interpret the tests (PCR-Tests, as well as Antigene-Rapidtests and quantitative Anti-body-Tests,...)
3. vaccination and other therapies must be developed locally (alongside globally #Biontech, #Moderna, #SiniVac, #Oxford #AtraZeneca, #SputnikV,...) and tested regularly according to existing safety standards.
Better cards in the fight against covid have also countries/regions that allow diversity (in the biological*, but also) in the societal sense. This is because innovation has and must have many faces and always comes along - 100% - unconventionally! As an interesting and good example of how Covid successfully managed is #Thailand. Note, that none other than the military government that successfully steers the country through the crisis. In addition, here below (link): a locally - not globally - developed COVID VACCINATION ON PLANT BASIS developed by a Thai women start-up. The vaccination should be available to all Thais in 2022: https://baiyaphytopharm.com/covid-19/ . The Thai government communicated that they will buy a diversity of three vaccines and make them available to all citizens and inhabitants untill the end of 2021.
And now what about the masks? Masks, are not part of this successful concept? Why? Masks and hygiene measures (no handshake and no 3x kissing off) are implicit and out of discussion. This, worn correctly and not on the neck or below the nose. Implicit, because everyone share responsibility for our next and more importantly, for the people in your own family that you love and want to protect. In whole Asia, everybody wear masks in public spaces.
We hope this brief and very simple, step-by-step guide helps with the current confusion. It is evidence-based and feel free to share.
