Swift action, widespread testing, contact tracing, and critical support from citizens has meant that South Korea has successfully been able to flatten the curve, taking much-needed pressure off the healthcare system. At its peak, medical workers identified 909 new cases in a single day. 10 days later, that number decreased to only 35.
South Korea have showed that the world needs to:
- intervene fast, before its too late;
- test early, often and safely;
- implement contact tracing, isolation and surveillance; and
- enlist the publics' help.
