Am trying to follow this conversation about the third world, please use Global South, I am a Barbadian, and I don’t quite follow these theories. Am also a trained Specialist Nurse in Medicine and Mental Health, as well as Health Services and Policy ( Economics) .

Who do you consider as ‘Third World’ ? As I think that some of these countries are coping rather well with Covid-19.

As I said I am trying my best to follow the conversation.

Hi Timothy,

In the so-called third world, the population is significantly younger. Therefore, the COVID-19 recovery rates are high (thankfully). However, economic recovery is nowhere in sight as of now. That's what I'd be worried about.

If anyone is interested, I can send across relevant articles on the list.

We're being told, in effect, the 3rd world is going to be wiped out by covid-19.

Is this the case or not?

Any links I can refer to?
