    Elderly population.

    Age and obesity are the two highest risk factors.
    Probably why Italy got clobbered early on.

    Dodges the question again
    i'll answer it as soon as you answer the question you've been dodging for days.

    You claimed I lied to this person.

    What lies did I tell this person?

    Be specific in backing up your claim about this private conversation you know so much about.

    Intergenerational households, too. Plus a culture of close talking.

    That applies evenly to the entire world, not just Japan or South Korea. It doesn't explain why South Korea has so much fewer fatalities that a lot of other first world countries.

    Didn't work so great for people who lost loved ones.
    Public health didn't work for those who died, very true.

    There was never going to be a country with zero deaths from SARS-CoV-2. Are you saying that public health policy makes no difference, because people died?

    What explains why Taiwan is doing so much better than South Korea?

    Full disclosure: Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan are all doing remarkably well

    Contact tracing, rapid, widespread testing, quarantine, and heavy initial buy in to masking -- with robust state provision of masks, quarantine facilities and rations, plus cellphone tracking in the case of Taiwan.

    Not in the case of South Korea. The were reopening mass gatherings (e.g., opening day baseball) just when states here were issuing shelter at home orders.

    Regardless, they won't have mass deaths because YOU aren't their demographic.

    damn, you're dumb.

    one variable doesn't explain population differences in an airborne pandemic. caseload counts. law of large numbers.

    Why are Japan and India doing so good? That should be the question.

    See how stupid this is getting?

    All these countries are orders of magnitude better than the west.
