From: Effects of medical resource capacities and intensities of public mitigation measures on outcomes of COVID-19 outbreaks

Cases The cumulative number of confirmed cases The cumulative number of deaths
China South Korea China South Korea
Case C1 8.256×104 9477 3329 170
Case C2 1.0426×105(+ 26.3%) 10,693 (+ 12.8%) 5175 (+ 55.4%) 190 (+ 11.8%)
Case C3 1.3881×105(+ 68.1%) 12,401 (+ 30.9%) 8618 (+ 158.8%) 217 (27.6%)
Case C4 1.9892×105(+ 141.0%) 14,941 (+ 57.7%) 15,396 (+ 362.4%) 251 (+ 47.6%)
Case C5 3.1711×105(+ 284.1%) 18,962 (+ 100.0%) 30,027 (+ 801.9%) 297 (+ 74.7%)

  1. Note that r1, r2, r3, and rh are the estimated values for corresponding countries, and for South Korea r3 = 0 due to its constant diagnosis rate in Case C1. For Cases C2, C3, C4, C5 and C6, the four rates r1, r2, r3, and rh were simultaneously reduced by 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50%, respectively
