A few days ago, I posted an interview with a friend who was moved to controlled quarantine in China. Today, I wanted to share a story from an American colleague who was just released from a mandatory quarantine in Singapore. Both stories highlight the effectiveness of testing, contact tracing, and mandatory quarantine in countries that have managed to control their outbreaks.
It’s something we have failed to do effectively in the United States and a large part of why cases in the country are soaring. I invite you to read the story below my American friend sent me and consider ways we can improve our personal response and compel our leaders to do better by all of us.
