Why is there such a varied response to a global pandemic?
“Why is there such a varied response to a global pandemic? Why does each response elicit acceptance from one and skepticism from another? Why has it been a challenge for some places to grasp social distancing? Some may say it’s a policy issue. But beneath all that is something else: the ever-present, often-overlooked power of culture (Aten, 2020).”
In your response, first describe the country as one that best represents a more “tight” versus “loose” culture. Then discuss how the country has generally responded to the COVID 19 pandemic.
