Report 25 - Response to COVID-19 in South Korea and implications for lifting stringent interventions

Source(s):  Imperial College London

While South Korea experienced sharp growth in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases early in the global pandemic, it has since rapidly reduced rates of infection and now maintains low numbers of daily new cases. The high volume of testing and a low number of deaths suggests that South Korea experienced a small epidemic of infections relative to other countries.

This study, therefore suggests caution is needed in attempting to duplicate the South Korean response in settings with larger more generalized epidemics. Finding, testing and isolating cases that are linked to clusters may be more difficult in such settings.
