In Wuhan, China the government issued orders that

everyone was to stay at home, and they posted a guard for each block or half-block. If people came outside, they were subject to arrest and imprisonment.
It's a totalitarian government-- they could be hauled away and never heard from again.

In Italy and Spain, during lockdown, there was a police officer or guard posted on every block. The health officials came through the block a couple times a week and took everyone's temperature. Anyone who was running a temperature had a quarantine notice posted outside the house, as I understand it.

China is an authoritarian society -- they know the population will comply under the threat of imprisonment. Italy and Spain are less so, but still, no one wants to be arrested. It's a strong deterrent.

South Korea had a large number of test kits all ready to go, so there was no delay in testing. They could identify the sick people much more quickly.

In the U.S.A., there were militias demonstrating on the steps of state capital buildings. They would not even wear a mask, let along stay at home. The supermarket in my community has the mask order posted on all their entrance doors. People STILL come inside without a mask, or talking on their cell phone with the mask pulled down. That wouldn't happen in China, Italy, or Spain. JMO -- B4E
