People in Bangladesh seem to fend off the Covid virus better than others.

A result of closing things down at all levels until very recently.
Lockdowns WORK, see.

The explanation is obvious, they are hopeless at counting covid deaths.

They don’t even do proper death certificates let alone report all deaths.

The article talks about the crowding. A person in the capitol has about 291 square feet of space. That's a square
of about seventeen feet. Would a lockdown do much good?
"Dhaka, the nation’s capital, has a population density of 36,941 residents per square kilometer. That is 95,677 people per square mile."

I suspect the reason is the same as for the only 5,000 deaths reported
in China.

Or the similar super low deathrates reported
by Mexico in the first few months.

Or North Korea.

Or Russia.

Or plenty of other places.

But cant explain why HongKong is much more crowded and does much better than
Bangladesh.

Yes, China has proved that a very gung ho lockdown indeed is extremely
effective at stopping the spread of the virus. They in fact quite literally
weld up the doors and leave the inhabitants to recover or die.

Pity about HongKong, Shanghai, Peking and countless other chinese citys.

Not so simple to say yes or no. You can put uninfected people close
together with no problem and no disease. Toss in one infected carrier
and now you have a problem. Even in a less dense if that particular
person moves around a lot.

The less interaction of infected with uninfected the better, thus the
lock down but what works in one city may not be at all effective in
another. Is there a lot of public transportation or do the majority
drive their own car? Do they work on a farm or in a tight meat packing
plant?

Minimizing interaction has to help, of course.
