South Korea is taking the necessary steps to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Getting tested for the virus comes at a nominal cost in Korea. Hospitals have walk-through testing booths. They take care of their citizens and visitors at airports. Take a look at the ways South Korea is dealing with coronavirus way better than the United States.

All of the above leaves us wondering why the United States isn’t following South Korea’s action plan. Sure, South Korea is around the same size as Indiana, which makes containing disease much easier. But it’s got a population of 44.7 million, whereas Indiana is at around 6.5 million.
On the upside, after China and Korea successfully lowered the number of new positive cases, Europe is following suit, as Italy, Austria and other countries are seeing their number of active cases die down. Until things go back to normal, stay home and check out more coronavirus memes!
