South Korea Is Tackling Coronavirus Way Better Than the U.S.

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.

This is what I call SICK

… which is something Trump promised but hasn’t delivered.

The care kit includes hand sanitizers, masks and fresh fruits. A dedicated case officer will check in on them twice daily during their quarantine.

Can we take a moment to appreciate how advanced South Korea is?

It takes 65.9 days for the number of coronavirus cases to double up in South Korea, whereas it takes only 3.2 days in the United States.

You can get free testing at Incheon international airport

Although they’re probably just checking if he has a fever.

When a reporter asks why the United States isn’t testing per capita like South Korea does:

Trump: I know South Korea better than anybody

Also Trump: Seoul has a population of 38 million

Wikipedia: As of 2020, population of Seoul is 9.7 million

Thanks to Trump, the city of Seoul just quadrupled in population. If you want to check out more of Trump pulling numbers out of his arse and other farce, here are the funniest quarantine memes starring the president.

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!
