The false narrative on South Korea v. US response to #CoronaVirus

We both got our 1st case the same day
Have they done better?

South Korea - 104 deaths 51 M people

US- 322 deaths 331 M people

They have twice as many deaths per capita…
The Left is desperate to blame @realDonaldTrump so they seized on lack of testing as the panacea

South Korea did tons of tests & isolated based on results

But we didn't have & couldn't have produced enough tests to do it on the scale they did due to prior choices & regulations
@realDonaldTrump .@realDonaldTrump took a different approach based on available options

Stop as many cases from entering the US as possible

So he immediately banned travel fm China & added other areas when needed

He was attacked
But so far that plan looks smart…
@realDonaldTrump #Trump also knew if we can't test everyone
Then the best approach is to limit interactions

Everyone is a potential vector
So the plan to self-isolate for 15 days will end up being a vital factor for limiting deaths in the US…
We won't know until this initial outbreak is over what the most effective measures were

Testing will need to be a better option for sure
but it's pretty obvious limiting new cases from coming into our country & limiting contact btwn people here were also wise choices.
