South Korea

Hyunseo Kim – Seoul, Korea 

“My life hasn’t really changed except for school shutting down, but all the tutor classes have started back up again.” 

“We wear face masks and carry hand sanitizer with us to avoid the Coronavirus. I heard that Americans started hoarding toilet papers and waters but in Korea no one does that. Also in Korea, when someone gets the virus, the government takes care of them, like they will pay for all of their medical bills. I feel really safe in this country because our government tracts everyone who has the virus or has a symptom of it so anyone who was in a close area with them could get tested too.”

“Most of the stores, work places, and restaurants are still open, but no one really goes out to eat.”
