I don't think those numbers mean much. Due to incredible inept management
test kits are very rare so as of yesterday only 1895  people in the entire
USA have even been tested, if 401 of them came out positive as you say
that's not very good. By contrast as of 4 days ago South Korea had tested
140,000 people, they tested 66,650 people within one week of it first
showing up in their country, but then...they had a different leader then
the USA does.
