Re: So many new infections in Korea.

I surveyed some classes this week. They can, for the most part openly talk about having covid. Just a month or two ago it was taboo.
Anyhow, turns out that anywhere between 30% and 80% of kids in each class had it. The average would be around 50%. So it's more or less double the national infection rate.
I guess the difference comes from testing all students twice (or even 3 times if there is a positive case in a class) a week for the past month.

My survey was more or less accurate.
Half of children under 9, have been infected with covid.
Between 10 and 19, the infection rate is over 43%

For the entire population of Korea, the infection rate is 30%.

One needs to dig a bit deep for Covid info these days because the most important thing in our lives right now is apparently the war in Ukraine.

People are sick of hearing about / thinking about coronavirus I guess, and now with vaccines, itís not much of a danger. Even before vaccines it wasnít much of a danger for the overwhelming majority. Half the world has been infected. What happened to them? Overall, not much. So people are less afraid than before.
