Where is the question from?
It seems a bit odd, earthquakes do not necessarily have a greater impact than volcanoes, it depends on many factors such as the magnitude of the event, the preparedness of the population, wealth and population density of the area affected, whether the event was predicted, level of development, lots more

Often with earthquakes it is harder to prepare for them than volcanoes and therefore the effects that follow are worse . Apart from buildings and infrastructure being built earthquake-proof , there isn't much more that an individual can do to stop / prevent the hazards that follow an earthquake e.g. Liquefaction HOWEVER with volcanoes we can prevent/manage there hazards much more easier such as divert their lava flows, reducing the risk of impacting locals .
