S. Korea responded more quickly to COVID-19 than to MERS

South Korea remains on high alert and
has so far kept the infection rate much lower compared to the MERS outbreak back
in 2015 this was largely attributed to government response that’s much improved
after learning from past mistakes Eagleman shet slide on the upgrades South Korea’s response to covin 19 began
even before the virus was identified the Korea Centers for Disease Control and

action from the government came on January 13th when he developed a testing
kit three days later it announced precautionary measures nationwide all
the steps were taken before the virus was found in South Korea on the 20th
when the first case was confirmed all this pre-emptive efforts came more

centers in notstar operating until three weeks after the first case patients
suspected of having worse were not isolated from the others allowing the
infection to spread quickly in hospitals which was blamed for more than 90
percent of the confirmed cases triage is critical in stopping hospital
infections but in 2015 when MERS broke out we didn’t grasp the significance of
triage s nor we have the resources to build them
immediately based on these modifications in the early response to Cove in 1940
