Headline: ASIA/LAOS – Zero deaths from Covid-19, but a negative impact on the economy and tourism
Vientiane – In the small, isolated Laos, a country with seven million inhabitants in the heart of northern Southeast asia, and with a government of socialist type, with a single party in power, the numbers of coronavirus are so low as to arouse astonishment: at the may 27, of the positive cases to the Covid-19 were only 19 with zero deaths. Meanwhile, two of the five patients suffering from Covid-19 to the hospital Mittaphab of Vientiane were negative to the test and, if negative, for the second time, will be able to return home. The “primacy” of Laos, shared in Asia, only Timor-leste, Turkmenistan, Cambodia and Vietnam is observed in spite of the geographical proximity with China and the huge coming and going of chinese labor in Laos: thousands of chinese workers are busy building the high-speed railway which should connect the South of the people’s Republic of Singapore. The route, which today require days, within a few years you will be able to accomplish in a few hours.
