Google data sheds some light on how coronavirus lockdowns are working.

Interesting how movement of people in South Korea only dropped 19% but they did take action swiftly, did aggressive testing and tracing of contacts with infected people.

The US dropped only 50% which is partly why they are the the new epicenter plus slow to act for implementing social distancing.

The data is misleading since Google uses the same dates for all countries. They should be shifted since every country has a different start date.

Misrepresentation of data by Google. For South Korea they need to compare January data. ] As of 4 February 2020, in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, South Korea is denying entry to foreigners. They started early with mass testing and very good tracing of all sources.
