    Will South Korea the next China? Watch out for South Korea. In the past 72 hours, it has overtaken Japan for the number 2 spot (not counting Diamond Princess) as to the number of cases infected by COVID-19. In the past 72 hours, South Korea showed a five-fold increase in the number of infected cases from 31 to 156. It is believed this sudden rise related to the a religious assembly in Daegu where a thousand followers attended. Among them was the # 31 infected case in South Korea, suspected to be a "super spreader." Expect the number to increase at an accelerated pace. If not contained right away, South Korea will go the way of China in just a matter of time.

    Here's more bad news: Coronavirus patients can have similar "viral load" whether or not they show symptoms. This suggests the transmission potential of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic patients. In short, a person may already be spreading the virus during the incubation but before the onset of symptoms. This article was published in The New England Journal of Medicine. If one recent study (not peer reviewed) which indicates the incubation period can be as long as 24 days, can only fuel the outbreak further.
