Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Why does Russia, population 146 million, have fewer coronavirus cases than Luxembourg?

Russia borders with both China and Europe where the COVID-19 outbreak has badly spread. However, less than 500 confirmed cases and a few deaths have been reported publicly from Russia as of Mar. 23. Is their border control so tight to prevent the novel virus from entering the country, have all the cases been reported properly, or are there enough and reliable test equipment or medical staff in place? Indeed, they have tight grips when it comes to controlling both geographic and cyber borders. But even one virus carrier could spread the disease to many, and they could spread it to many more. Also, are all the cases reported properly? You may remember that the doping scandal that banned Russian from all major sporting events for four years.

Read the article and think when Russia’s infection figures surge, if ever.
