Doing research on other countries and their covid experience is quite the revelation. It showed what we experienced in America was no different, then in other parts of the world. The same phases of no one taking it serious, to a couple cases, to the complete lockdown. The ways people entertained themselves in lockdown, the rise in internet shopping, and governments bailing out large corporations in their country, Whilst we all watched tiger king in America, Egyptians had tigers entertain them in their homes. While the US printed money, the Egyptians got loans from the IMF. It really is strange how the world all basically went thru the same proess, just in their own unique way.
