Cases, cases, cases ... overrated statistic.

What's the current death rate? I'm guessing it's rather low in So. Korea because if it were not low, the if-it-bleeds-it-leads media would report it.

The death rate, not the number of cases, is the really important number to know.

-16 ( +2 / -18 )

All the restrictive measures working as well as always. Yes, case reporting is the norm now which is why I can see no end to this pandemic and the rather crude methods being used to "deal with it".

-9 ( +0 / -9 )

What's the current death rate?

The 7-day moving average is 3 per day, which is lower than the suicide rate, 38 per day, by a factor of 10.
