How South Korea Reined In The Outbreak Without Shutting Everything Down

South Korea, Singapore, and Hong Kong have all acted in ways that show it is possible to effectively manage the COVID-19 outbreak without shutting down an entire country.

This helped them start testing early, limit travel effectively, and track movement and subsequently quarantine people who came into contact with the virus - thus limiting the spread and keeping infected numbers relatively low.
