    tests per million people: 37,398
    positive tests: 890
    performed tests per positive: 15.3
    deaths per 100 positive cases: 0.22
    This doesn't seem remotely as dangerous as they hype makes it out to be.

    Yeah, although one should take into account that the Icelandic mortality rate likely will rise a little bit, as more cases have had time to progress.

    I don't think the danger of corona necessarily is a "hype", though. Different countries are in different phases of progression, and noticed the spread at different stages, and implemented different measures to curb the transmission once they were aware of it. Italy didn't notice there was a high rate of transmission in the country before it had spread wide in the population. Sweden and UK have been very reluctant to make any serious efforts to stop the spread before the hospitals become overrun, so I'm expecting to see the same rates to show up there in two-three weeks' time as we've been seeing in Italy lately.

    South-Korea and Japan have been seeing very low mortality rates because they went to work fast and hard. If not, they'd probably be in the same boat as Italy, Spain and the US right now.
