South Korea continues to relax COVID restrictions despite experiencing highest per-person infection rates in the world
In this March 17, 2022 article, Victoria Kim and John Yoon report on the massive turnaround in how South Korea is dealing with its current surge in cases.
The report quoted Lee Soo-won, a business owner from central Seoul who said, “Everyone used to be hush-hush about getting infected like you were causing a nuisance…Now we’re congratulating people on getting super immunity. The perception is it’s like getting a cold.”
The South Korean government continues to do away with its restrictive policies, allowing instead the “virus [to] move through the population, in an effort to allow small businesses to recover and normal life to resume”.
Predictably, the “health experts” are raising concern as the country slowly lifts its remaining COVID restrictions. Eom Joongsik, an infectious disease specialist at the Gachon University Gil Medical Center in Incheon says that he is worried about the other serious illnesses if the medical system were to be stretched thin, especially as 65.6% of the country’s critical care beds were already full.
South Korea’s vaccination rate is currently at 85%.https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2022/03/17/south-korea-coronavirus-record/
Editor’s Note: Why is it that health experts, who keep saying that vaccines are effective are the same ones who are saying that countries should not remove COVID restrictions despite high vaccine uptake?

If vaccines are not the solution to the pandemic, then why are countries spending so much money and resources in acquiring and rolling it out?
Why are the vaccinated even more afraid to go back to normal than the unvaccinated? When will this fear stop?
