What South Korea can teach Ireland about Covid-19 fightSouth Korea has been lauded internationally for managing to slow the number of new cases of the virus - so what has it done that the rest of the world is not doing, asks MrJustinMac MrJustinMac tests. they did test!!! tests of over 40k here cancelled with no explanation. self isolation in case ur untested positive is biggest nonsense ever. how many ppl have separate locations outside of family home to not to spread it on family? MrJustinMac So we are NOT following this model. SK have an open and transparent system of tracking who has the virus, where they have been etc. Ireland is cloak & dagger from the start.
