16. Wrong. They kept their factories, restaurants and shopping malls open.

From the NPR article:
The other thing that South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore have in common is that they've been able to keep most factories, shopping malls and restaurants open. 

What we are calling a shutdown is MUCH more than what South Korea limited. CA, NY and other states had to not only close down schools, but even more devastating for the local economies, they had to shut down sit-down restaurants and all "non-essential businesses." The shutdown of restaurants has be devastating to my little beach town here in CA. Restaurants are the main employers.
