There has been way too much sensationalism about corona, so firstly, go wash your hands, drink a beer, and relax.
I was traveling for the holidays for awhile, so this is my first blog-post in awhile. Sorry.
My basic take on corona in South Korea is:
a) It is not a national catastrophe, and the foreign media has been too sensationalistic (CNN particularly). Yes, it is uncomfortable and disruptive, but it is not bringing down the state, creating panic on the streets, an apocalypse scenario like you’ve seen in zombie movies, and so on.
