Doesn't seem to matter whether it is a communist country or open democracy or how locked down things became. Russia has lots of covid cases compared to say New Zealand. Things were never locked down too tight here and it isn't as though there was ever a time when you could go to the bank or supermarket. By cultural I meant extended big families and crowding are hard to manage and where individual freedoms are the priority or where people are more likely to be defiant of government advice.
Countries that defy international advice and cooperation, were slow to react and had lazy double talking leadership have suffered more. A good public health system means more tests are done, they are free or cheap, hospitalisation, treatment and drugs are free or cheap and the best advice is on hand immediately makes a big difference. The every person for themselves health model doesn't go so well with pandemics.

It happens, lol!

Fish Mint has been growing well in the shade of my rollinia tree, with no care.

Asiatic Day Flower is holding on, thought it had bit the dust.

Both supposedly contain useful antiviral agents.

Do not drink Dairy with a respiratory infection

I have cured blood poisoning a lot actually
think bicycling staying awake , and not cleaning wounds not good

Yes Garlic is good for blood (antiviral ) , but I would say Onion for Lungs is better

I feel bad not going on about this, but scary seeing people buy up all the herbs to themselves
Or imagining that like people already did with toilet paper.

Edit never heard of fish mint will look into it (I thought you just said mint (mint has vitamin A)
