You might want to rethink that argument.The amount of deaths would be less had the United States and Italy acted swiftly from the start. South Korea managed to contain the virus with swift action.
As of today, South Korea has 9037 cases with 120 deaths. That’s a death rate of 1.3%.
New York City, now considered the epicenter of the outbreak in this country, today has 23,000 cases with 180 deaths. That’s a death rate of 0.78%.
We’re doing better than South Korea, but you keep comparing us to Italy.
