A senior Health Ministry official acknowledged privacy and civil liberty concerns surrounding the wristbands, while stressing on the needs to have in place more effective monitoring tools.

South Korea passed legislation to combat the spread by making it illegal to break quarantine. This is essentially an ankle monitor. I don't see why people are surprised that govts of other countries are able to do this. By American standards, it's a gross thing to see. It seems like South Korea, among other countries, will come out of this outbreak with a better understanding as to how America views Civil Liberties, and why we view it the way that we do. I honestly figured that covid-19 was going to be like that alien invasion trope: where humans of all factions team up, and put aside their differences, in order to face a threat/evil that threatens the entire human population. I never would have guessed that certain governments like China (not talking about s.korea) would end up trying to take advantage of this situation to make things worse.

And so tracking begins in a western style democracy no less.... and so maybe the conspiracy theorists who theorized that this was possible one day aren't as crazy as we originally thought. Maybe. And where will we put all the quarantine violators and possible carriers.... I know.... Fema Camps! No! No! This can't happen in America! It must be me.... with a bad case of cabin fever. Maybe.

Bravo South Korea, I have a suggestion to improve this idea: add GPS fencing that if crossed triggers electric shock every 20 seconds, and it notifies police where the moron is when being shocked. Just to clarify I'm not trying to be sarcastic.

These are just house arrest bands. The police use them all the time. The post says it's only for people who have been caught ignoring lockdown rules, so I don't really see an issue.
