South Korea turns to technology to combat coronavirus
South Korea, one of the worst-affected countries in the coronavirus epidemic outside China, on Tuesday reported fewer than 150 new cases for the first time in two weeks.
At the time of broadcast, the number of infections had surpassed 7,513 and at least 54 deaths had been attributed to the disease.
But unlike those in China and Italy, the Korean authorities are taking less drastic measures to contain the outbreak, and are keeping citizens informed about their efforts in almost real-time.
