Why South Korea's Coronavirus Curve Looks So Different From The Rest Of The World

10 156
As COVID-19 spreads around the world, some countries' timelines look different from others. With a combination of contact tracing, testing, and isolating cases, along with other physical distancing policies, places like South Korea were able to reduce the size of its coronavirus outbreak and flatten the curve. But many other countries have seen the number of new cases grow exponentially. Countries that didn't start testing and tracing early have had a harder time reducing the number of daily new coronavirus cases.

The Korean government cares about it’s own people.
The USA government are all corrupt and don’t care about it’s own people they just want to line their own pockets!

If practicing your freedom affects others' freedom to live, is that really what freedom is? Maybe yes. But it doesn't mean it's good.

Because they empower healthcare professionals to direct policy decisions. They used math and science. The opposite of what we are doing now. Us is apparently doing a purge via a disease

Yeah, it's now August and they're still pushing the fake pandemic narrative. It's not about a pandemic, it's about imposing global technocratic fascism. Countries that didn't impose draconian mandates are somehow fine. Sweden didn't do anything, no masks, no shutdowns, and somehow they're all fine. Poor developing countries with dense populations with no capacity to implement the fascistic mandates should have mass casualties yet nothing is reported. This is the biggest psychological operation ever created

The answer is easy: culturally, Americans see themselves as individuals and don't want to be told what to do. Eastern nations, however, see themselves as part of a whole and are more compliant with mandatory government regulations like masking and staying at home which affect the spread of infection.

One more thing, Korea probably does not lie about what people died from so it was over quick like any other respiratory virus, they run a bell curve of a couple months.

This whole analysis is flawed because you are assuming case numbers are in direct relation to the population infected at any particular time. Case numbers are not, they are a reflection of how many tests are done at a particular time. Your addition of countermeasures to the timeline makes no sense as countermeasures do not affect the number of tests done. California was hit right away with almost half the people in the bay area sick in Dec or Jan. Millions were exposed by end of Jan. Testing people in March in April does not mean they were exposed or contracted a disease in March or April. On top of this the creator of the test (PCR) said it is not to be used to diagnose. It has no reliability in diagnosis so the data from testing is completely unreliable. Hospital admission as compared to countermeasures would be a better analysis. New case data the media keeps pushing is a lie. Those people were already infected at some time in the past, anytime in the past, by any type of corona. It has zero correlation to who got sick at any particular time frame. I hope this clears the data up a bit. God bless! Get back to work before they kill all of society.

Update: In a Wednesday May 27, 2020 manuscript detailing how high-risk COVID-19 patients should be treated, Dr. Harvey Risch, a Yale epidemiologist, notes that the combination of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and the antibiotic azithromycin (AZ) "has been widely misrepresented in both clinical reports and public media," and that "Five studies, including two controlled clinical trials, have demonstrated significant major outpatient treatment efficacy." Hydroxychloroquine+azithromycin has been used as standard-of-care in more than 300,000 older adults with multi co-morbidities, with estimated proportion diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmias attributable to the medications 47/100,000 users, of which estimated mortality is

Korea's response is good, but not now. All the students became experimental mice in(by) the Ministry of Education. (The reason my handwriting is strange is because I am not good at English :)
