Each note contains information about the spread of the pandemic in a given country (including data on morbidity and mortality), decisions of governments in the political, economic and social spheres, and a preliminary assessment of the effectiveness of actions taken to flatten the curve. Whenever such an assessment could not be formulated, we have presented the public's reaction to the decisions taken by authorities. We have also tried to estimate how restrictive these actions are and the extent to which they violate civil liberties. The added value of these notes lies in the fact that, although we do not provide footnotes to the facts cited (in most cases this would increase the volume of the text two-fold), the data derive from reliable, verified sources.
