Since the first known case of COVID-19 in South Korea was confirmed until now, a total of 11,018 infected people and 260 deaths have been officially registered.
Currently 55 people are critically hospitalized and fortunately 9,821 have already been recovered. Let us remember that these data are the officially offered by different administrations from South Korea.
The current population of South Korea is 51,470,000, based on latest World Bank and United Nations data.
In South Korea, the rate of infection stands at 21.41 cases per 100,000 people, therefore, as of today, it is estimated that the 0.0214% of the population is officially infected.
World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that the coronavirus kills about 3.4% of the people it infects. But that death rate varies between countries and across age groups. It’s also likely to change over time.
Comparing WHO estimations against the South Korea death rate, over the total number of patients, which is 2.36%, we see a difference of -1.04%.
