    Yes. That was proven in Vietnam. Despite a population of 95 million and a close proximity to the source of the outbreak, the country has yet to report a single COVID-19 death. Then again, it’s difficult to know which countries are doing a better job reporting the numbers.

    Considering the infection statistics in better-led countries, Washington's 20,000 is appalling to me (with over 1000 deaths).

    Does the state of Washington have any leaders? That could have made decisions to your liking, I mean. Or even your county or municipality—any leaders there? None? Bueller?

    I think Governor (the Snake ) Inslee is doing as well as possible under the circumstances, not getting proper PPE or funding or much of any help from Trump, who should have made this a priority as soon as it was brought to his attention, in December or at least January.

    Vietnam stopped the virus in January when my son was there. They used the military to shutdown the town and they traced who had contact with them and brought everyone to the same town until well. Obviously we have too many rights for that to happen here.

    We did contact tracing and "voluntary" at-home quarantine here in my county, and shut down transient vacation lodging.

    Pretty much nipped it in the bud here too.

    Didn't need the military, or even the Sheriff, as people voluntarily Did The Right Thing for the most part.

    Now that the tourist season is getting going though, well....
