The first confirmed case of the pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in South Korea was announced on 20 January 2020.[1] On 19 February, the number of confirmed cases increased by 20 and on 20 February by 58[2] or 70,[3] giving a total of 346 confirmed cases on 21 February 2020, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Korea (KCDC), with the sudden jump mostly attributed to "Patient 31" who participated in a gathering at a Shincheonji Church of Jesus the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony church in Daegu.[3][4]

Amidst the fears of further contamination, mass gatherings in the affected cities were cancelled and a few hundred soldiers in Daegu are in isolation.[5][6] As of 4 February 2020, in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, South Korea is denying entry to foreigners traveling from Hubei Province.[7][8]

As of 24 March 2020, South Korea has about 9,037 cases and 120 deaths,[9] with over 348,582 people having been tested, a case fatality rate of 1.33%, which is lower than the WHO's global case fatality rate of 4.34%.[10]

South Korea introduced what was considered one of the largest and best-organised epidemic control programs in the world, along with Taiwan,[11] Vietnam,[12] and Singapore.[13] Different measures have been taken to screen the mass population for the virus, and isolate any infected people as well as trace and quarantine those who contacted them, without further lockdown.[14][15] The rapid and extensive tests taken by South Korea has been judged successful in limiting the spread of the outbreak despite not using the drastic measure of quarantining entire cities.[14][16][17]

In middle of March, South Korea successfully contained the Shincheonji cluster, however, excluding the Shincheonji cluster, the spreading trend has not diminished.[18]

As infection rates have risen outside Korea leading to increases of sick arriving in the country (476 of 9,661 cases were imported as of 30 March), the KCDC will be implanting stronger infectious disease control measures for travelers coming from overseas as of 1 April. Additionally, new self-quarantine measures for travelers coming from Europe or the United States will be in effect from the same day.[72] Seeing the infodemic on COVID-19 information starting in China and spreading to Korea and the US, fake news researcher Cha Meeyoung of KAIST and the Institute for Basic Science, along with researchers from Ewha Womans University, started the multilingual Facts Before Rumors campaign to separate common claims seen online.[73][74][75][76]

45 people are being investigated by the police for allegedly violating COVID-19 self-isolation. Under the revised anti-infectious disease law, violators can face up to a year in prison, a 10 million won fine, or in the case of foreign passport holders—deportation.[77] A Taiwanese woman was deported on 5 April for refusing to stay in a quarantine facility as she disagreed with paying for the cost of staying at the government designated facility, reportedly costing around 100,000 won (US$81) per day.[78]

If it was so contagious, the whole country would be infected with millions of death...

But it's not, so that proves it's just a normal flu season overhyped into a pandemic.

This also proves that social distancing does nothing to stop the flu.

I checked the numbers here in Canada. The Death rate in relation to infections is only 1.66 % as per the numbers 2 days ago. But from what comes out of New York you would think the plague is a death sentence.
