Their massive testing effort aimed at identifying and isolating infected patients was no doubt a key part of their success in combatting virus, as were their early mitigation steps. pic.twitter.com/Wqqj6tPbCB— Scott Gottlieb, MD (@ScottGottliebMD) March 17, 2020
Yeah, it was getting out of control at the end of February in South Korea. They have fought hard and contained it. Their strategy should be a model for the West. Hopefully, we'll see similar declines in cases in the next two weeks.
