The US health and human services secretary discussed the pandemic with his South Korean counterpart

US Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar spoke by phone Monday with South Korean health minister Park Neung-hoo to discuss South Korea’s response to the virus, the country’s health ministry said in a statement.

South Korea has been hailed by many for its response to the pandemic, specifically its decision to conduct widespread testing and thorough contact tracing.

“Minister Park explained that early detection and stopping of infection is important considering the high early contagious nature of coronavirus and that PT-PCR testing method is necessary, which is accurate and reliable,” the South Korean health ministry said.

The US Federal Emergency Management Agency said that South Korea is supplying the United States with 750,000 coronavirus tests.
