  • Can I suggest something: our government should quickly do what South Korea have and is doing; be pro active and screen as many people as you can, especially in these red hot areas. Resources may be constrained; be humble seek assistance from other countries like China or Korea, otherwise we are in danger of spinning into an uncontrollable disaster.
