The immediate consequences of a constitutional debate should not be of concern. There will certainly be differences of opinion and deep differences of opinion between the Member States. These are not new, and the process would only make them clearer, which is a good start. While much has been written about the enduring impact of Covid-19 on the world order, one aspect is becoming increasingly clear: the post-pandemic world may not be so different from its predecessor. The famous American commentator Richard Haass writes: “Covid-19 will not change the fundamental direction of world history as long as accelerating it.” Bear with me.

Even in Australia, where expectations for competent and timely leadership are currently much lower, the Corona crisis will be another test for a government with a reputation for bungling and cover-up. It is really a subject on which the security of the nation is at stake. Another thing could be incurable, and not just for the government. According to the latest figures, the country has confirmed 62 Covid-19 patients and four deaths, compiling the results of more than 2,100 tests. Recent cases suggest that the Community is spreading undetected. The donation of a test machine last week increased Myanmar`s testing capacity from 80 to 1,400 per day – still needed to obtain enough reagents to perform the tests. Doubts remain about these cases and the actual number of current cases will not be known for at least two weeks.
Lesotho, home to two million people in South Africa, also reports no cases, despite hundreds of cases in neighbouring South African provinces. The country`s parliament has been in turmoil since February, when Prime Minister Tom Thabane was charged with the murder of his first wife. Lesotho`s government addressed Covid-19 just before 10 March and announced a halt to foreign trade, and a week later non-essential services were closed. At the end of March, the government announced several suspected cases – one of them would have died before the test results were known – although the latest figures still indicate zero positive cases.
