In the S. Korean model, quaranteen officers have significant powers to
make sure individuals who have tested positive to stay sequesters.
They also have the power to use individuals' cell phone location
history to track people's past locations via GPS to find other people
who may have interacted with the infected individual, and who should
therefore, be tested, and possibly, quaranteened.

I doubt this would work in even in the United States, where the
population at large seem to be much more accepting of government
surveillance in the name of National Security.  However, in Europe,
and especially countries like Germany, who have a much greater fear of
government surveillance (perhaps because of the experience of the
Stasi in East Germany), I very much doubt the full South Korean model
would fly at all.
