The South Korean millennials listened to their government, took it seriously and didn’t go on spring break.
I also do not recall their president saying this virus is a hoax. Do you?
Well, put yourself in his shoes. He’s been attacked by the left every our of every day since before he took office. He’s been accused of “Russian collusion” and the country went through the Mueller investigation to prove that wrong. Then they tried to impeach him on nonsense and he beat that. The Democratic contenders for President suck so they probably weren’t going to beat him in the election. His economy was soaring and unemployment was at record low levels when this new virus in China emerged. China wasn’t giving us the full details and the liberals and media were ramping up pure panic. I’m guessing Trump felt they were trying to use the last card they had and force a panic selloff (exactly what happened.) The mortality rate in the United States is becoming more comparable to common influenza (we are currently at .0128 with Covid-19) as more people get tested. Our numbers for the first 3 months still don’t compare to 2009 H1N1. Despite all that, he has taken more action and more action faster than every other world leader. I could give a rat’s ass what some college kid with zero life experience thinks about Trump. Maybe some day when you get a real job (if you are even taking courses for a marketable degree) and pay real taxes and live a few more years you’ll then get a better grasp on things. Right now your are ridiculous. You hate Trump. I get it. I don’t think you know why you hate him but you hate him. Good for you. Your college professors have led you like a rat with cheese.
We do not produce test kits because of Trump. So that is why we cannot be like South Korea.
Thats just a dumb comment. “We do not produce test kits because of Trump?” Sure…and he created the virus…
The South Koreans are much better at Civil Obedience.
South Korea sensibly stockpiled medical equipment which seems to have quelled cases in the short term. We still don’t know if and when it will mutate and come back any stronger? The good news is that several countries…including the U.K, are very close to having a testing mechanism that would reveal if individuals have had the virus…most of these tested would be immune and in a position to help those in need
