The number of Coronavirus confirmed cases is pretty biased.

My brother just shared that in Korea if you call a clinic for a random symptom like a slight fever, you are asked to come in the clinic and get a Covid-19 test. If you are confirmed, the places you have been to will be recorded and shared publicly. Of course your identity will not be revealed.

Now we are in the US. Many of my friends and one of our family friends who is also a doctor shared he had a mild cough. Is it Covid-19? Very unlikely. But we will never find out. I was told that unless you are severely ill or have known exposure like traveling, you don’t get to test.
