Currently, the COVID-19 has reached and affected the most and advanced as well as the poorest countries but the most glaring difference is in the manner of their respective governments to manage the containment and the isolation of the disease. The case of massive unemployment does not discriminate these countries. The obvious difference again has been manifested in the way countries cushion and mitigate the impact of the pandemic on the working and toiling masses. The governments of both the strongest and the weakest nations have been facing the problem of how to reach a proper balance of controlling the movements of the peoples and to continue with the functioning of the economy or the balance between the virtual and actual economic activities.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the best and the worst manners of how on one hand autocratic and rightist governments have taken advantage of the situation to tighten and suppress the democratic activities of their people, and, on the other hand, some governments have seen the decisive role of their peoples in controlling the spread of the COVID-19. This can only be done with ensuring the participation of the people and can only be done by being open, transparent and always in consultation with them.

In the current phenomenon, there is a great difference of how social media play to mitigate or to aggravate the development of COVID-19 vis-à-vis 2003-3 SARS and the MERS 2012. It can be used by those autocratic and dictatorial states to control the projection of its effects in the positive management of COVID-19 in their nations. But it can also be used to expose and tell the truth of some countries mismanagement of the pandemic in their respective countries.

Through social media, the world has come to know that most of the countries, including the most advanced are not prepared to face a phenomenon like COVID-19. It has also showed that the more the leaders of these countries are not convinced with the seriousness of COVID-19, the most number of cases of their people are affected. The earlier these leaders have taken actions, the most effective these nations and the people to have contained the deadly virus.
