Analysis (Multi Decision Matrix).
The idea is to position the effected countries based on their effect by New Cases and New
Death per one Day. Here we have data of 18 March 2020. So based on data sampling of 18
countries we setup a reference value (Average) for both columns, then develop the relative
values for each individual country, which is reflected on the Matrix/Graph. If we look to the
graph, it is obviously the area split into two parts, Very Critical Situation part and Tend to
Therefore, when we position the countries according to their values we get clear picture
about the effected countries and the size of impact relative to the others. Which can be
classified by the following terms:
Very Critical Situation: ITALY
Critical Situation: Spain, France, Iran
Highly Impact: USA, Germany
More Likely to Recover: China, South Korea, (Lower part of the Matrix – Green Aera)
The study of one day ( 18 March 2020) shows that Italy is in very critical situation, the world
should react fast to save people, where its looks Spain is on the way and France, if there is no
immediate action. Iran, still struggle this Virus. While the advanced countries as USA and
Germany have a very low rate of Death this position, them to more likely to move to recover
stage in spite of high rate of impact. Most of the worlds are in the region of tend to recover
and as long as we move down in the matrix, the most stable recovery country will be ( as
China and South Korea).
About UK – it is very close to origin of the matrix; it is more likely to effect by this virus in
future if there is no rules and restriction, as Heathrow Airport is the main gate to USA.
Moreover, the most factor to spread this virus is the closed area as aircrafts (Cabin).
