Hello, faithful readers — all 3 of you! I hope this post finds you and yours well and managing. As you may know, I am an American expat living in Gyeongsangbuk-do, the hardest-hit region in South Korea. I have been getting messages from friends back in the U.S. asking about current conditions here in Korea, hoping to get a prognosis on what they can expect in the U.S. So let’s chat about that.
I’m sure you’re sick of this topic, too, but I am gonna prattle on anyway. As someone who has lived in (as in ‘been in the system of,’ not just visited) two other countries besides the United States, I wanted to share some stories about my experiences in health care.
