If South Korea’s number’s are accurate

If the world had South Korea’s death/case rate (so 170 deaths with 10,000 reported cases) the world would have confirmed 2.47 million cases, not just the 1 million we stand at.

Though if we all tested as effectively as South Korea, and achieved their death/population rate if 3/million, there would be 23,325 deaths (based on a world population of 7,775 million.  This would be too many, but compared with over 42,000 deaths ascribed to coronavirus, that means 19,000 people have died from not managing this illness as well as it has been in at least one place.
