Testing, contact tracing, attention to detail and leadership have helped get pandemic under control. South Korea’s first line of defence against COVID-19 now is at the Seoul airport, and it’s an impressive sight. Thousands of passengers in orderly lineups, almost all masked, wait patiently to have their temperatures scanned. They pass before many infrared cameras, and then electronic thermometers are held up to their ears. If they show any symptoms, they are immediately ushered to adjacent testing facilities.
