Episode 90 How effective are S. Korea’s quarantine measures?

The entire world is putting all of its efforts to prevent the outbreak of the COVID19, which emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan, in Hubei Province last December. South Korea started actively responding to the infection since January 20th, when its first confirmed case was reported. It set up a central disease control center and sending chartered planes to evacuate its nationals from locked-down foreign soils.
The South Korean government conducted a thorough contact-tracing of the confirmed patients, and disclosed the information to the public in a timely fashion to prevent the spread of the infection. The foreign press praised South Korea’s way of handling the virus. To quickly inspect a large number of people at once, the government pushed the production of self-diagnosing kits.
In this week’s The Point, we take a look at how South Korean quarantine measures are working, and what the government can do to reinforce its efforts further.
