Coping with COVID - International Perspectives (Austria)

Fear, uncertainty, changes, disruption… These are the best words to describe today’s picture of the world. The Coronavirus has not left any country untouched and has already affected the lives of millions of people. Lockdown or open borders, quarantine or free movement, #stayathome or #donotpanic, indifference or calmness, anxiety or discretion, exaggeration or cautiousness? What is currently happening around the world? What strategies are the national governments adhering to? What is the public attitude towards the present situation? In this series of online discussions, we will explore these questions with the country office directors of KAS as well as discuss the pandemic’s future implications on the economic, political and social life in their countries.
