Question about English (US)

What does "South Korea's decision to invest heavily in public health after it suffered a severe outbreak of MERS allowed it to keep the COVID-19 per capita death rate down to around a 20th of that in the US." mean?

I don't quite understand the part of "around a 20th of that in the US". What do you think that means? I know it depends on the context, you can see the whole article here as well, it's not that long. I'd really appreciate your help. https://eikaiwa.dmm.com/app/daily-news/article/...
