South Korea Corona Fight without the Total Closure of the Economy

While the countries of the world closed their public domain for fear of the spread of the new Corona virus, the situation in South Korea was different as the government did not order the complete closure.

South Korea has been able to fight the emerging corona virus through preventive measures, such as the widespread use of masks, partial closures, and strict monitoring standards.

Even before the outbreak of the Coronavirus, wearing masks was a tradition in South Korea when a person fell ill, as the mask prevented infection by coughing or sneezing, which was later found to be helpful in fighting the Coronavirus.

A study from the “Yale” American University, had made it clear that wearing a mask can save from 3 thousand to 6 thousand dollars for the state, for everyone who does not catch corona.

 South Korea was conducting large-scale and extensive testing across the country, as South Korea manufactured about 100,000 test units per day, and the test results were sent over the phone a few hours after taking the sample.

Extensive testing has allowed the South Korean government to identify potential patients and focus on specific geographic points. For example, while public places such as schools, churches, and gyms were closed, non-hot spots, such as factories, cafes, bars, and shopping malls were left.

Seoul has also conducted extensive tracking and surveillance of anyone who might be infected with the virus or its communicators, by tracking cellular devices, bank balances, and surveillance cameras.

In addition, he asked the infected people download an application on their phones to track their locations, in order to ensure that they do not violate health isolation, according to the “Washington Examiner” report.

The government also published the data of the infected and the details of the injury publicly, in the shops and cafes visited by the infected, in addition to the buses they boarded, without revealing their names.

It is noteworthy that the number of infected in South Korea has reached, Monday, 10 thousand and 537 cases, while about 217 died, and about 7 thousand and 447 people recovered.
