The real story is that ‘developing’ nations have done remarkably better at fighting COVID-19 than the rich and white. The real story starts precisely where the western map ends. Here be dragons. We be dragons.

The real story is that places like Vietnam and Mongolia have completely kicked COVID-19’s ass. The real story is that places like Rwanda and Ghana have innovated and survived. There are countless stories like this — from Sri Lanka to Trinidad & Tobago, but you wouldn’t know because we’re not rich or white. But you should know. Because we’re right. This information could save your life.

(But please keep posting about a vaccine, eating like normal, and relying on your institutions to save you. It'll all work out for you I'm sure.)

@emsenn This is an awesome article and I want to read more of the author's work, but Medium won't let me, nor will it even say if she has a website - do you happen to know off the top of your head?

@ifixcoinops I think all they have is an email newsletter, but I'm not sure, no.

@emsenn Apparently it's but that just redirects to Medium ☹️

@ifixcoinops Strange, works for me (within the free limit, but then there's always Private tabs...).


@ifixcoinops Yeah, sorry. I thought I could maybe work out something helpful...
