    What explains why Taiwan is doing so much better than South Korea?

    Full disclosure: Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan are all doing remarkably well

    One of them hosted the Olympics

    Contact tracing, rapid, widespread testing, quarantine, and heavy initial buy in to masking -- with robust state provision of masks, quarantine facilities and rations, plus cellphone tracking in the case of Taiwan.

    Not in the case of South Korea. The were reopening mass gatherings (e.g., opening day baseball) just when states here were issuing shelter at home orders.

    Regardless, they won't have mass deaths because YOU aren't their demographic.

    damn, you're dumb.

    one variable doesn't explain population differences in an airborne pandemic. caseload counts. law of large numbers.

    Why is Laos doing so much better than South Korea?

    See how stupid this is getting?

    All these countries are orders of magnitude better than the west.

    One variable explains everything for Darrin. He's allergic to complexity.
