There is no level 7. You're tricking us. We're outraged.

It was done using something called 'machine learning.' I'd explain it to you as my last Master's thesis involved using R and Python to classify thousands and thousands of texts according to genre, but it'd probably go over your head, what with you being an English teacher in Korea and unable to learn a language and all.

If they shut down schools but they don't shut down anything else, this is pointless

Internet cafes, where patrons mostly play multiplayer computer games for an hourly fee, are getting the blame for spreading the novel coronavirus as students have nowhere else to go amid extended school closures.

Use of internet cafes declined after the COVID-19 outbreak started, but inched up in March as schools and hagwon remained closed.

Nowhere to go? Stay home.

Not true.

Nothing official, but I just heard something about schools staying closed for 2 additional weeks. So the first day would be April 6. Also heard that this means the first mid-term exams for middle and high schoolers will be cancelled.

South Korea’s success in controlling disease is due to its acceptance of surveillance

South Korea has been widely praised for its management of the outbreak and spread of the coronavirus disease COVID-19. The focus has largely been on South Korea’s enormous virus testing programme.

What hasn’t been so widely reported is the country’s heavy use of surveillance technology, notably CCTV and the tracking of bank card and mobile phone usage, to identify who to test in the first place. And this is an important lesson for more liberal countries that might be less tolerant of such privacy invading measures but are hoping to emulate South Korea’s success.


https://www.yahoo.com/news/coronavirus-south-korea-success-controlling-164156714.html

There are three main ways people are tracked.

First, credit and debit cards. South Korea has the highest proportion of cashless transactions in the world. By tracking transactions, it’s possible to draw a card user’s movements on the map.

Second, mobile phones can be used for the same purpose. In 2019, South Korea had one of the world’s highest phone ownership rates (there are more phones than people). Phone locations are automatically recorded with complete accuracy because devices are connected to between one and three transceivers at any time. And there are approximately 860,000 4G and 5G transceivers densely covering the whole country.

Crucially, phone companies require all customers to provide their real names and national registry numbers. This means it’s possible to track nearly everyone by following the location of their phones.

Finally, CCTV cameras also enable authorities to identify people who have been in contact with COVID-19 patients. In 2014, South Korean cities had over 8 million CCTV cameras, or one camera per 6.3 people. In 2010, everyone was captured an average of 83.1 times per day and every nine seconds while travelling. These figures are likely to be much higher today. Considering the physical size of the country, it is safe to say South Korea has one of the highest densities of surveillance technology in the world.


surveillance = safety  :police:

Ontario’s former information and privacy commissioner says if deaths increase exponentially the government could enact measures to track cellphone data to further limit the spread.

“Let’s say the number of COVID-19 [deaths] in Toronto or Ontario tripled. Maybe they would use that as the excuse or a reason needed to invoke it,” Ann Cavoukian said in an interview.


https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/a-dramatic-increase-in-coronavirus-deaths-could-make-prime-minister-invoke-rules-to-track-cellphone-data-191903160.html

During a press conference on March 25, Trudeau indicated that the government was “not taking measures” like collecting anonymous cellphone data to track the spread of the virus.

“We recognize in an emergency situation we need to take certain steps that wouldn’t be taken in a non-emergency situation, but that is not something we are looking at now,” Trudeau said. “But all options are on the table to do what is necessary to keep Canadians safe.”
