(i) The leadership of Germany
The Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel is getting praised for her prompt approach and the manner in which she shared the truth of this virus with the citizens of Germany. Very calmly she told the people of Germany that this bug should be taken seriously otherwise more than 70 percent of people will get infected.
(ii) Testing and public support
The good part was that people of Germany listened to their Chancellor and supported her completely. The testing was done in a comprehensive manner and social distancing was practiced very strictly. The government is planning to reopen small stores in the beginning but there will be some restrictions such as the limit on number of people in the stores, everyone will need to wear masks, etc.
