Good people of Ricochetti, in 90 minutes Rob Long and I will be recording a podcast with Dr. George Savage, and in the meantime we’re eager–desperate, really–for some basic facts. In a word, what, exactly, has South Korean done about the coronavirus that seems to have kept the infection rate very low in that country?
This tweet by Ben Shapiro got my attention:
Rob’s impression is that South Korea has only been able to permit people to return to work because it effectively locked down the country for a couple of weeks first. As you see, though, Ben Shapiro doesn’t mention any lockdown.
So what is it? Did South Korea engage in a lockdown, shutting down factories and businesses and sending everyone home for a couple of weeks? Or did it not?
Can someone help–fast?
