What Covid-19 Lessons Can South Korea Teach Us?



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Christine Ahn.

While the novel coronavirus has infected millions of people worldwide and is seen as a great equalizer, a few nations have succeeded far better than most at controlling the virus.

New Zealand and South Korea are the two most prominent examples of Covid-19 success stories. On tomorrow’s show, Sonali will look to New Zealand to see what they did right.

Today, Sonalis examines South Korea and President Moon Jae In’s approach to the Covid-19 pandemic.
