8 more coronavirus deaths, death toll to 139
- 384 more fully recovered coronavirus patients released, total cured people at 4,528
South Korea inplemented a large sacle testing program from the off:
- >365,000 tested so far
Nevertheless, deaths continue, sometimes 3 and 4 weeks after a case is diagnosed. A couple of weeks ago South Korea was only showing around a 0.6% case-fatality rate.
- that has now risen to around 1.4%, and I’ve seen estimates the progression could take it up to 2% or more.
