Three Paradoxes of the Territorial Distributions of Contaminations with COVID-19

Three Paradoxes of the Territorial Distributions of Contaminations with COVID-19

A month ago, in the first episode regarding the pandemic, we identified the fact that the structural distribution of the spread of SARS-CoV-2 virus throughout the countries and autonomous territories of the world fulfils all the standards of the nodal analysis. The single difference from similar distributions in the case of world’s gross domestic product is the higher degree of concentration in the case of the pandemic. 13 countries, i.e., 6.19% of the number of countries and autonomous territories, cover 80% of the total number of infections.  More

Twelve Countries Cumulate 80% of the Pandemic Deaths

The “parallel world” of the pandemic has two main coordinates: contagion cases and deaths, accompanied by the very important indicator of fatality rate relative to contagion cases (Rc/d).In our previous interventions – see here and here –, we demonstrated that the distribution of contagion cases has fully met the standards of nodal analysis. The comparative analysis by continents has identified three very important paradoxes: the United States, Asia and Africa. More


The World’s 19 Most Powerful Countries Account for 71% of the World’s New Coronavirus Cases

The World’s 19 Most Powerful Countries Account for 71% of the World’s New Coronavirus Cases

On August 31st this year, 6 months have passed since the current pandemic forcefully started, on March 1st. It is an important opportunity to examine how the world’s great powers have developed effective government programs to reduce the number of cases. The power structure of the world is defined by nodal analysis as the number of hierarchically descending countries that account for 80% of the world nominal GDP. According to the latest definitive data available in the UN database in 2018, the power structure of the world consists of 19 countries presented in Table 1, each country being characterized by the share of total GDP and the share of total cases.  More
