We should say that since the virus first appeared, Wuhan closed entrance and exits to the city, stopped travels and declared a curfew
We should think of China not as a country but as a continent due to its economic structure, population and consider each of its states as a country. There are 15 million people living in Wuhan city where COVID-19 emerged. When we add the population of Hubei state to this, we have a population of 60 million people. Firstly, we should say that since the virus first appeared, Wuhan closed entrance and exits to the city, stopped travels in and out of the city and declared a curfew. In a word, serious measures were taken after the first case. If we look at the latest stage of the virus, there isn’t any case now originating from China. At this point, China changed the winds to itself.
Although China has restarted 80-90% of its production, the country could not produce the orders it received from the world in January and February. And it cannot find a market to sell the products now, so it has become pressed for money. Because Europe and America cancelled all their orders. That’s why all the small, middle and even some large scale businesses face bankruptcy. According to estimates of the international rating agencies, China will close the first quarter of the year around -4% and -10%. If this is the 3rd World War, for the first time in history, the whole world is on the same side. Therefore the solutions should be on a global scale.
