Why Bhutan is an outlier in the fight to Covid19?

Summary:
Sayan Dey and Malati Sunar in this piece point to reasons for Bhutan’s low Covid19 numbers: Low Population, Diverse Geography, environmental consciousness and mass  consciousness towards personal hygiene. Bhutan’s Gross National Happiness ways have been appreciated but not implemented.  Perhaps the COvid19 virus pandemic will change all this and some countries might begin their transition closer to Bhutan model (even if a long haul).
