The countries with the best response to coronavirus are led by women. Today, we see more and more business leadership positions being held by women, and that is a great thing. But as Marissa Orr states in her book, “Instead of encouraging women to lean into their individual strengths and celebrate the value women bring to the table, we essentially tell them to behave more like men.”

During this COVID-19 crisis, these women leaders have led with the truth, decisiveness and love.

Angela Merkel of Germany told the truth early to her citizens. Germany, with 83 million citizens, has had over 132,000 infections but veryย low deathsย per million — far lower than most other European countries.ย 

When Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen heard about a mysterious new virus infecting the citizens of Wuhan in December last year, she immediately ordered all planes arriving from Wuhan to be inspected. She then set up an epidemic command center, ramped up production of personal protective equipment such as face masks and restricted all flights from mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macau. Taiwan’s early, aggressive intervention measures have limited the outbreak to just 393 confirmed infections and six deaths. The US State Department cites Taiwan’s coronavirus success in calling for Taiwan to be given observer status in the WHO’s World Health Assembly.

Clarity and decisiveness are saving New Zealand from the storm.” New Zealand is an island country of almost five million, which relies heavily on tourism. But Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern shut New Zealand’s borders to foreign visitors on March 19 and announced a four-week lockdown of the country on March 23, requiring all non-essential workers to stay at home except for grocery shopping or exercising nearby.
