COVID‑19 pandemic is a reality. This study extracted information from a case in Italy and a case in South Korea during COVID‑19 pandemic. Epidemic threat evolved differently in Italy compared to that in South Korea. Case fatality ratios from Italy and South Korea were consistently diverging over time. It appears that ‘epi‑epidemic’ determinants can strongly influence the epidemic burden in the communities.
