Except, Korea entered the crisis one month ago while the US entered it less than one week ago, so South Korea has stable numbers, while the US numbers are still growing;What are you on about again? US and SK have very similar numbers of cases and deaths per 1mil population.
the curves couldn't be more different, because South Korea's curve is almost flat while the US' one is very, very steep, so numbers are bound to change FAST;
and, South Korea is known and taken as an example for the precision and amplitude of their testing measures, which means they have almost ALL of their cases as official numbers, while the US are scratching their heads and still trying to understand how many cases they actually have.
You can see that because while South Korea's deaths figure is roughly 130 people, the US' is something like 900, which is quite strange if you cling to your extremely incomoplete data of similar number of cases per million. That stark difference only should tell you something is not the same in the two datasets.
I noticed Narf said mostly what I said, so yeah. This is the situation.
BTW, given that quarantine programs start showing their effects after around 14 days, and given that only parts of the US are locked down as of now, the curve will stay steep and the cases will double every 2 to 4 days for the next 7-10 days AT LEAST. This means the US might climb up to 250.000-300.000 cases within the next 7 days.
Trump had a head start on the virus becaue he knew it was coming and he knew what happens if you act slowly. Yet he did nothing and he played it down. That behaviour is criminal.
