As much bad things that came from China, couple things that China and South Korea and many other countries has done much better than us are having many many more testings done, and also separating people with the virus from people that doesn't. What we're doing right now is barely any testings being done, and self quarantine when we have symptoms or already infected. We can't all self quarantine either or you risk being fired, so then you're forced going to work while being sick. While in self quarantine, staying at home most likely you're also spreading it to your whole family rather than being separated into hotels or hospitals etc. Some cities in the US can only do 20 tests a day, 20! In Korea they average about 20,000 tests a day. We are so far behind and unaware that I highly doubt things will get better sooner rather than later. China also locked down subways, restaurants, etc. etc. while having the infected separated while most Americans are still going to work without a clue if they have the virus or not.
