< br> Korea managed to stop the spread of infection from abroad in time. However, dealing with the problem of secondary infection among the local population proved to be much more difficult than establishing control at the border. Korean doctors do more than 20,000 tests a day. The country has a regulation according to which violators of the self-isolation regime are threatened with a prison term.
