So these were pictures of people collapsing were posted on social media in the past few days til yesterday (2/23) but no mention in the news. This makes sense because there is no freedom of press in South Korea and everything gets censored. (I know this first-hand because I worked in public radio for half a year in Seoul) The situation may be even worse than what is reported considering these photos are all in very recognizable spaces in Seoul, not Daegu. What's crazy is that I have personally walked by all of these areas shown on this pictures as have most people from Seoul. As of this moment only 31 people are confirmed to have SARS-COV-2 in Seoul.
