Synopsis:  During the pandemic, why do governments around the world receive different responses from the public? How come some follow quarantine rules and actually stay at home, while others refuse to cooperate? We seek to compare these differences and delve deeper to find their causes. We turn our focus on China and the US; the former first struck by the virus, and the latter one of the hardest hit.
