I'm not sure on basis we are choosing 240-260 cases as the basis to begin a comparison. Why not after 100 cases, or 1 dead etc ?
The cases also are a function of population. i.e. Portugal will never have the same death toll as Spain, though it may have the same curve
trajectory, or same % of pop. infected.
However, by whatever criteria are used, we so far have an infection growth rate (% over previous day) lower than Europe & US.
If on the same base of infected people, we have a lower rate of infection growth, DESPITE having a larger population and higher urban population density, it would mean the proportion of people getting infected is a lot lower.
