Handling the Pandemic with Negligent Homicide

South Korea (pop. 51.2 million) and the U.S. (pop. 328 million) had their first confirmed cases on the same day.  Five months later:
S. Korea:
13,338 Cases
288 Deaths

United States:
3.04 million Cases
132,056 Deaths
Our population is barely more than six times larger. Our number of cases is 224 times higher and our number of deaths is 458 times higher.
Yes, Trump has shown atrocious (criminal) leadership, but the fact that we have whole sections of our population refusing to cooperate with the beseechment of public health officials isn’t making matters any easier.
