Japan: Korea Japan and Address Pandemic

japan: New York was relatively slow to address the pandemic and has since seen more than 15,000 people die from the infection, according to The Japan Times. Although the article is careful to point out the demographic and cultural differences at play, the general theme is that Seattle's success in bringing the virus under control was because scientists were in charge of the message from the start, while politicians were directing traffic in New York. Washington was the first state in the United States to identify a resident who had contracted the virus, and Seattle, its biggest city, quickly acted to contain a serious outbreak. Something similar could be said about the difference in response between South Korea and Japan. Japan's methods have been more improvisational. South Korea managed to suppress its own outbreak early on thanks to a concerted effort to test and trace based on expert guidelines. (news.financializer.com). As reported in the news.
