The Stringency Index is a helpful way to summarize the covid19-related policy implementations made by governments around the world. It is compiled and scored by the University of Oxford as part of its covid19 Government Response Tracker

Perhaps the most interesting part of the chart for me is watching how most of the Asian countries move first, then collect down at the bottom over time. And those countries have had less sever outbreaks.

So less strict policies enacted earlier have been more effective than more strict policies enacted later.

Why have some Asian countries been able to tame the virus? I explore that question here.

All data pulled from the see19 dataset found here.
