    I think that the most important graph that the leader of the state sees is the deaths, because the number of cases appears in abundance in the United Kingdom, and this indicates the seriousness of the virus, so the leader must find some laws related to the Corona virus for safety and health, for example, taking the Corona virus vaccination and home quarantine and publishing some information on Social media and hanging ads all over the city, this reduces the spread of the Corona virus

      Could you please elaborate on the second half of your answer, appreciative_pear? That is, how do public information campaigns help reduce the spread of covid-19?

        Ericka @ The Economist's comment 13 Jan 2022

        Well, I will explain, for example, that some government men hang advertisements about the danger of this virus and some suggestions, such as washing hands and wearing masks, and they hang them around the city, thus increasing people’s awareness because the government is the one who hangs it, madam. Is this how my comment explained

        We can spread awareness and beware of COVID-19 through the media, communication sites and the internet. Almost everyone uses the Internet, so the message (how to protect and prevent Covid 19) reaches the largest number that can be benefited and contributed by acting in short films that show symptoms and how to prevent them and protect ourselves, this helps to spread awareness and reduce infection

    The most important graph for a country's leader to see is..Cases
    This is because.... Because if he cares about reducing the number of injuries, it will reduce the number of deaths and the number of injured, and that the health of people is the most important and one of the priorities of the state, and if the number of injured increases significantly, it will spread fear and hope, the number of injured in the hospital will increase and the number of deaths will increase. If we reduce it, we will we hit two birds With one stone, we will reduce deaths and reduce the number of injured in the hospital
    To make decisions about covid-19, the other information a leader needs to know is.. 1- The percentage of injured and dead in the country 2- Negative expectations if the country remained the same (to be a motive to confront the virus) 3- Expected waves of the virus in the future 4- What is the state’s situation, is it improving or getting worse? 5- Suggested solutions from people advisors 6- What are the measures that reduce the number of infected people?

    The most important graph for a country's leader to see is..Deaths
    This is because.... Because the state must know the number of losses in order to take the matter seriously and take care of the commitment of the people and that their fate will be their death if they are neglected.
    To make decisions about covid-19, the other information a leader needs to know is.. The amount the country needs of vaccines Provide all necessary medical equipment to detect corona and take care of them Paying attention to the press and publishing to the people what is new Emphasis on the police to take care of the people and take care of wearing a mask and take punishment for those who take it off

    The most important graph for a country's leader to see is..Hospitalisations
    This is because.... They can know how many people are in hospital with covid 19 and that helps them know how many doctors are needed.
    To make decisions about covid-19, the other information a leader needs to know is.. How many deaths there have been becuase then they can see how Covid has been going up and down in the amount of deaths.

    The most important graph for a country's leader to see is..Deaths
    This is because.... People are afraid of death, so if they see this number of deaths they will protect themselves more, this will push people to take the vaccine to protect themselves from this disease, it is true that it does not prevent infection, but it reduces it,
    To make decisions about covid-19, the other information a leader needs to know is.. They should know the number of deaths, the number of injuries and recovery, because their knowledge of this is useful by making them more careful, and also reassures them that with the increase in the number of injuries, it corresponds to an increase in the number of recovery cases as well. It is important for people to know the safety rules, and how to protect themselves from this disease

      I agree with you. The theory is acceptable to me
      Do you think that when people know the number of injured and deaths, they will apply methods of prevention and protection??
      I think that it is possible to forgive and everyone refuses to apply the prevention methods because they believe that they do not work and that they do not protect them (from situations that occurred in front of me in my town). I tried to prove the opposite to them and that they reduce the injury and protect them, so can you help me??

    The most important graph for a country's leader to see is..Cases
    This is because.... I chose cases because they are determined by deaths and the number of injured when the leader is based on the number of cases it is on his country if it is in a bad case or in good condition, you will get worse or will improve
    To make decisions about covid-19, the other information a leader needs to know is.. He needs to know the opinion of the people, because he earns the trust of the people and earns the people’s support for him. Therefore, in my opinion, he should listen to people’s solutions through which he can put ideas to solve the problems of the state.

        Katie @ Topical Talk's comment 14 Jan 2022

        I mean, when we know the number of cases, we can determine the deaths through which we can reduce the number of deaths by reducing the number of cases by making everyone vaccinate and I have a question now that the cases in the United States are increasing, how are you going to reduce them??? How will you convince people that vaccination is beneficial and not harmful?? Knowing that some have the idea that when they are fed, they die after 3 years, how are we going to remove these ideas????

    The most important graph that the leader of the state must see is the cases, and this is because, this general reckless behavior in which we are observing now shows any increase in danger to countries and he must therefore follow up on vaccinations and their effectiveness and he must take the necessary measures.

    My idea will be to conduct seminars to spread awareness among citizens, and it will be about the seriousness of the epidemic, and since this virus has killed and deprived people of their right to life, and to place some obligations such as home stone, wearing a mask, etc., and this is for the safety of society

    13 Jan 2022

    The most important graph that must be seen is the number of cases (because) it is rising more than the rest of the fees, and also when we limit the number of cases, we can count the number of deaths and the number of injured in hospitals
    Before making any decision, we need some information, including:
    1) A graph of the number of deaths in each hospital. It is possible that there is a hospital that follows methods that can be used, and we can find solutions to problems according to the capabilities of each hospital, as they differ from the other
    2) A graph of the number of injured in each state in order to increase the amount of caution and attention and to find possible solutions for the state with the most injured
    3) Counting the number of infected and deaths of all age groups, including children, youth and adults, and how the virus affects them, “even if we find a solution or decision, we know the extent of its impact on the groups and in any case it may be included in it or not.”
    #### We need this information to make the right decision.

    I think that the most important thing that the country’s leader should see is the number of people infected with the Corona virus daily, because I think that he sees the number of infected people daily and takes permanent preventive measures, and he must be sure that the disease increases and develops day by day, and if he takes permanent preventive measures, the death rate will decrease.

    i think that the most important graph that the leader of the state sees is poverty, because the number of poverty is abundant in countries, whether developed countries or not, but the situation of poverty increases in non-developed countries due to the lack of sufficient income for the state, andThis works to neglect a large number of citizens, and this works on the decline in their entry and the increase in their debts and priorities to the state and may losecurrency

  • British Council.jpg aware_painting | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    13 Jan 2022

    The most important graph that the leader should see is the “hospitalization” because it gives the correct and integrated number of everyone who was infected with the virus and the degree of infection and whether the infected person took the vaccine or not. The state’s rules and instructions have reduced injuries and the extent to which people deal with them. It is also necessary to look at the arrivals from abroad and their impact on the curve of infections and transmission of infection, and to think of more effective means to reduce injuries, and work to develop a preventive framework against disease and provide means of prevention from Sterilizers, vaccines, and masks, and the necessary work to control the situation

    I think that the most important graph that the head of state sees is the cases, because the more cases in the country the greater the number of deaths, and for this he must look at the cases and he must establish laws because the situation is dangerous at the present time, and it has taken every person more than 12 years to vaccinate, carry masks and wear Mask all the time and open the hospital for people with special needs

    The most important graph for a country's leader to see is..Cases
    This is because.... I think that knowing the daily number of infections is the focus of attention, as we can know a lot of information, for example, places where infections focus, age group, observing the speed of spread and the effectiveness of vaccination, and many studies that help us assess the epidemiological situation
    To make decisions about covid-19, the other information a leader needs to know is.. I need to know the severity of the infection and determine the most affected places and the health status of the residents of the region to know the strength of immunity and what are the weaknesses in maintaining a healthy health system and the extent of its application

    In my opinion the graph of the number of daily cases of covid-19 in the UK
    Because it is important to know the number of injuries every day, perhaps it will be a day when there will be very many cases, and so we will discover the reason..!
    _______
    And the information I will need is
    1_ (Airport information), meaning that it is necessary to know the traveler from which country he is coming from?! Because there are countries where there are very large injuries..! (Therefore, there will be special limits for who can come to the country and who can leave..!)
    2_ (the percentage of vaccines that we will import) and also this is an important point that we will focus on. It is necessary to know how many vaccines we will get and whether the vaccine benefit rate is high or low, are the vaccines studied or “falsified” ..!
    3_ (Counting the number of injuries in terms of location) I mean that hospitals must make a census of the injured from whatever region they are...
    Perhaps the area with a large number of injuries has a problem..!

    The most important graph that the leader of the state should see.. daily cases
    This is because .... because hospitalization and the number of deaths are related to the number of cases, so if the cases are fewer, the number of deaths is less and hospitalizations are reduced, and the higher the number of cases, the higher the hospitalization and the number of deaths
    To make decisions about the coronavirus, the other information a leader needs to know is.. the number of people who have received the vaccination, the number of visitors to their country, and the number of infected people relative to their country.

    The most important graph for a country's leader to see is..Cases
    This is because.... Because the deaths that occur are due to the cases spread in the world, and also the number of cases helps in looking into the future by anticipating the number of those who will use the vaccine and the number of deaths in the future and making the necessary plans for the infected cases and also so that people know the seriousness of this virus and also the cases will be published Fear in the state and this will make people take their precautions.
    To make decisions about covid-19, the other information a leader needs to know is..
    1- Mistakes that people and scientists can make, such as experts who have a second guess but are silent and also curtail the rights of the media 2- Listening to people’s plans, confronting them, and starting to do the best of them, and also not stopping education in schools and universities until students are made aware of the danger of this virus.
    3- The leader must be aware of everything that happens in terms of deaths and plans, and he must always use the best for his country, and he must know what is best.

        I think that yes, because by learning from our mistakes, we can change ourselves for the better. There is an urgent need to learn about the virus and its damages, and as it was said, “Science in childhood is like engraving on a stone.”In my opinion, during this period, they should focus on educating children as much as possible, because through them they are raising a conscious generation, and we must also put the Corona virus in the ideas of fantasy animation because they follow it a lot.

        Yes, I think that students have not received enough education in schools and universities, so students should be educated in schools and universities and on social media pages, and I think that if the seriousness of this virus is not explained once, it will be better, because students will be bored if they hear it for a long time . For once, so I think it is better to educate the students in days, so that the students are not bored, and also so that they understand its danger, and I also think that it is better that they look at a well-known person in the area who contracted the Corona virus and died because of it or entered the hospital and does not come out of it because the students are afraid of these things.

    This is because.... Hospitalisations is important to know Decline and rise in the hard cases of corona virus and it helps the government to know how many docters they need in the hospital and the people are Interested by the hospitalisations because the deaths will be much less than the hospitalisations and the normal cases will be much more than the hospitalisations
    To make decisions about covid-19, the other information a leader needs to know is.. 1_ To know The rise and fall of cases in the corona virus graph 2_ It should not have a significant impact on schools and their students 3_To know how many people are vaccinated so they can take a right discussion about covid 19

    First question: What is the most important graph to see? Why ? The most important graph to see is the number of UK daily cases; Because the number of daily cases is followed by the number of people in hospitals infected with the Covid-19 virus in the United Kingdom, and then the number of daily deaths related to the virus. Question 2: What other information will you need before making decisions about the COVID-19 rules? Choose no more than three new types of information and explain why each is important. The first information I will need before making decisions about the rules for COVID-19 is:First, it is necessary to disseminate information about the dangers of the virus, spread awareness and spread the news firsthand, so that those who have accounts on social media can see the news through the idea of ​​“social media.” The second information is to work on the idea of ​​“advertisements.” My idea will be “advertisements.” It is possible for large and small companies to promote Ads to increase profits in the face of people and the world who need different health things to prevent the virus. The third and final piece of information is working on the idea of ​​“technology.” Because of this idea, technology can do a lot for the Covid-19 virus, so how can technology do so much for humans.Technology can make robots to help people around the world and provide and send everything needed for humanity through robots, or it is possible to make medicines and vaccines for the virus.

    If I am responsible, I will make decisions based on the number of deaths I have chosen because I want to know the extent of the impact of this virus on human bodies and to know the organ that, if infected with the virus, causes a danger to the health of the injured, which leads to his death. If this is known, the issue will be dealt with correctly.

    The most important graph for a country's leader to see is.. Hospitalisations. This is because by studying hospital admissions, we can see how they recovered from the virus, which enables us to set appropriate rules for each age group to eliminate this pandemic. Also, To make decisions about covid-19, The leader must be aware of all the population centers so that he can prevent the spread of the virus in a rapid manner by establishing a rule that states the appropriate number for each space.

    The most important graph to look at is (the number of daily deaths related to the Corona virus in the United Kingdom) because: its rise and fall are irregular. They must look at the factors that led to death besides the disease, for example, wrong medicines or a specific type of food and thus warn the infected of them and avoid using them with The patients
    In my opinion, you should also look at 1- Measures used in hospitals and proven to be effective in improving patients. Because specialized research in treatment helps reduce complications.
    2. The most common complications that caused deaths in Corona patients. Because research into the causes of death helps discover ways to prevent patients from deteriorating.
    3.What are the most common ways of transmission of infection? Because this spreads awareness in the community to avoid the causes of disease.

    I think that the important graph is the first, which is the cases, as it includes the number of infected and deaths, where we can study it, which shows us the percentage of the seriousness of the current situation, where we can determine the severity and difficulty of the situation we are facing, and we have to study the virus from books, study the vaccine and the consequences Therefore, since it is not possible to solve a problem with another problem, the companies based on the production of the vaccine for the virus must ensure that the vaccine is guaranteed and free of any problem that may result from this vaccine. So that there is a family category for both newborns and the elderly. We have to be on guard and ready for any mistake that might happen out of heedlessness of scientists and vaccine-producing companies.

    One of the most important graphs a head of state should consider is the number of cases infected . This is because if the number of cases decreases, the number of deaths will also decrease, but the capacity of the quarantine centers is the most important above all because if hospitals are able to properly care for all the infected cases, there is no risk at all . The danger comes when there is a shortage of hospitals in accommodating infected cases .So, if I am in charge , I will make decisions by the number of daily deaths because this means that all the previous precautions were not taken seriously and they also need to be reconsidered . And since saving people's lives is the ultimate goal of the crisis, I think I should put the whole statistics into account together and work to avert disaster from the start.

    1-

    I think all of the graphs are very important. Each graph completes the other and each graph sends vivid messages to those in charge to take the suitable measures. If I have to choose I will choose the graph showing the number of daily deaths because there is nothing more precious than a human being's life. Tracing the number of deaths is the most triggering thing to follow and to care about because it will push leaders to move to resolve the crisis. I am not saying that following the number of daily cases and the number of people in hospitals is not important but focusing on the deaths will give a chance to live for those who are still alive. As a leader, when I see the number of deaths increasing I will do my best to keep those who are injured alive. I don't want more losses, I want to keep my people healthy and alive.

    2-

    To make decisions I will need the followininformationnn:

    Trace the reasons behind the numbers of each of the graphs. If I have a high number of new cases on a specific day, I will study the reasons behind this number. For example, were there any parties, gatherings, football matches, events..etc. Were the people taking all the precautions needed? If not. I will think of ways to urge people to do everything to protect themselves and others.

    If I am responsible, I will make decisions based on the number of infections, because I want to know who is targeted by the virus and their percentage. The injured are in the thousands, so I will be able to put in place a law, for example, to close schools for a certain period, unless the number of injuries is reduced, or I make a specific period for opening and closing markets

    The most important graph for a leader is to know the number of cases because it is the main source of deaths and cases in the hospital, through which it allows each leader to make future plans to reduce the virus, because if we also publish cases of infection, a state of terror and panic will be created among the people, which leads to increasing their precautions and meeting The state’s desire to reduce the virus by using preventive measures. As for the other information that the leader should know, he can give the citizens a role in developing part of the plans, as he has to follow up on deaths because people are the most important on the list. Increase awareness of children and adults, and this is by not Stop education and the work of institutions, as he must always take the best solutions to fight this virus, and we must follow up on hospitals so that other hospitals benefit from their procedures, because there are some hospitals with less experience. We really need this information to end this virus once and for all.

    In my opinion, the cases, because when we know the cases, we will see the extent of the virus’s spread, how fast it is, and how to get rid of it. In my opinion, the more the number of cases and the more visible to people, the greater their caution and fear and the extent of their concern. Also, he should know which groups are targeted and the virus causes their death faster so that effective vaccines are prepared for them in the first place. And faster and then the other groups to preserve people’s lives and also listen to people and their ideas. When listening to several ideas, we will reach a solution, even if the idea of ​​a particular person is not complete, but perhaps when we listen to several ideas, we conclude and reach the final solution. We also have to put strict laws and reduce mixing between people and come to an idea We can live with it until it ends, but by adhering to all laws and placing fines on those who violate the laws. We also have to hold awareness sessions and lectures on this issue and how dangerous it is and how simple it will become when we abide by the laws and preserve ourselves.

    The most important graph a leader should see is the number of cases
    Because it determines the number of deaths and people who die while they are tormented from the severity of the pain of this disease and also because of knowing how much we cause the outbreak of this disease in their area to know what is the most period during which the disease spreads. It is appropriate that strict laws must be put in place to limit the spread of this disease, such as curfews and forcing workers to do a corona examination twice a week, as well as violating those who do not wear masks.And also to return life to normal and return school and university education and teach them how to deal with any disease that will spread in the future

    The most important graph that I see fit regarding this spreading epidemic and also suitable for this country, and that this epidemic, Covid 19, is widespread and uncontrolled, I will take the decision not to allow anyone from outside the country to enter without a vaccine and vaccination, and to make this country safe and whoever afflicted with this epidemic is one of the In this country, we are confined to a room in the safe medical hospital that guarantees the needs of the patient and does not allow anyone to enter him except for doctors only. They must take all necessary measures for prevention and also end any method of gatherings, even if these people are not scammers or have taken the vaccination and if they are keen to secure vaccination And medicines for all ages to end this disease and make our lives beautiful

    Here's your answer:

    "The most important graph for a country's leader to see is..Cases
    This is because.... Because the number of cases indicates the percentage of hospitals prepared for this epidemic, and this number is related to the number of deaths, where if it increases, the number of deaths increases, and if it decreases, the number of deaths decreases and the number of recovery increases.
    To make decisions about covid-19, the other information a leader needs to know is.. The percentage of vaccinated people, the availability of the vaccine, the percentage of incoming tourists, and the possibility of developing virus mutations"

    The number of people in hospitals infected with Covid-19 virus in the UK, is what is important to know, we must know how many people have benefited from the vaccination against the Corona virus, in order to give an opinion for vaccination

    The most important graph for me is the one showcasing the number of hospitalised patients. I will emphasis more on this graph as it shows the severity of the infection. As a world family we have been dealing with covid for over 2years now, we can't impose restrictions every time cases shoot up. Minor restrictions are Allright but steps like lockdown shall be avoided at all cost because it does more harm than good. Even after double the cases from June 2021, UK is reporting less than half of the hospitalisation cases and significantly lower casualties. Hospitalisation rate proportionally impacts the death rate. This graph gives an accurate and statistical picture of the crises.

    On the bases of the info from the graph, I will decide upon the degree restrictions, reserve stock of medicine and resources needed, international aid, pattern seen in covid surges and further approach.
    These aspects make graph second of higher value to me.

      Does the hospitalisations graph actually show severity of infection of those in hospital, or would you need more information?

        To a great extent, hospitalization evinces severity. For instance India, is somewhere experiencing the third wave and though the cases are touching the 3 lakhs a day, and positivity rate shooting upto 29. 21% in metropolitan cities, hospitalization is low and this is been highlighted by the health department and govt. Which means People don't really require immediate medical attention untill unless they are prone to danger due to old age or medical conditions. The stats were completely different during second wave, with hospitalization surging up and oxygen problems creating a havoc. Besides the hospitalizated cases I would still need in depth knowledge of ICU beds occupied, people on ventilator and oxygen supply required to analyse better.

    The most important graph that must be seen is the number of cases because the possibility of each of the rest ending their lives or afflicting a serious disease that negatively affects their health, or the possibilities in cases focusing on them because the probability of a large number of them recovering from it.. (You have some information, standards and norms that they should know before making any decision.) 1-Follow the number of cases in the hospital so that the doctors can take their possibilities of medicines and medical and respiratory devices in a situation where the probability is greater that they will recover.
    2- Or on the streets they must adhere to the following Who I do not harm their health such as masks and health tools such as Dettol and sterilizer.
    3- A graph that specifies the number The infected and a graph that determines the number of deaths and a graph that determines the number of deaths in the event that the number of aunts is more, they are transferred to another place and not in one place.

    The most important graph for a country's leader to see is Deaths
    This is because people are dying and that is less people and tax in the country.
    To make decisions about covid-19, the other information a leader needs to know is The spread of the virus

    I think the most important graph to see is hospitilizations because it shows how many people are in hospital which would show if the NHS are getting too many people in hospital meaning if they do run out of beds for paitents which will give you the information to know if we need to go into lock down so that the NHS don't run out of beds and have room for new patients htat do catch it even when we are in lock down.

    The most important graph for a country's leader to see is..Deaths
    This is because.... if the government knows how many people are dying due to Covid, they will urge more people to get vaccines for young children and adults. This way, if we control the amount of deaths, we will also be able to monitor the amount of vaccines everybody needs. It will also keep everyone safe from Covid and give them a better chance of not getting very ill ig=f you have covid.
    To make decisions about covid-19, the other information a leader needs to know is.. what they are going to do to reduce the cases and how they are going to protect everyone from getting the virus.

    The most important graph for a country's leader to see is..Cases
    This is because.... If you know how many cases there are you can see how the hospitals will be affected subsequently you can make important decisions such as hiring more staff, adding more wards to the hospital and building more hospital. I can prove this by the prime minister has made important decisions and on the news he is looking at the amount of case. The case chart is also important because it can tell people if we are making progress.
