Yes, it does have a very low mortality rate.
The highest is Italy, with 4%, and Germany has kept it as low as 0.4%.
So this is not the big threat some fear it might have become.
China shows the total is not that bad, since they are over it mostly.

But what we DO have to remember is that COVID-19 is not going away.
Everyone will get it eventually, if not this year, then in one of the following years.
And it will get more lethal over time.
The safest way to get resistance is to get it sooner rather than later.
However, if they get a successful vaccine, that would be best.

Total deaths/Total cases = 1.35% mortality rate in the US.

This is from the CDC site TODAY:



Since we're pretty much refusing to test anyone unless they're so seriously ill that they need immediate medical care, those numbers are skewed. We should wait on all these numbers. We haven't done enough testing to have a clue.

we do not know the actual mortality rate because we do not know exactly how many people have had the virus and recovered without seeking medical assistance or who didn't meet the threshold for a Dr to recommend they get tested

The flu, which Trump and the Hive Mind stupidly compare to COVID-19, has a mortality rate of 0.1%.

1.35% is 13.5 times more fatal than the flu.

So the next time you hear a Trumptard talk about the umpteen thousand people who die each year from the flu, multiply their number by 13.5, and that will explain why we should have reacted much more quickly and with greater force to this "hoax".

That's correct it could actually be less deadly than this years flu....not that that is not bad but its interesting to note.....

OK just ignore that you are incorrectly stating that positive test results are equal to the number of infections

The same is true for the flu.

The same metrics are being used here.

The coronavirus is 13.5 times more fatal than the flu.

Total deaths/Total cases = 1.35% mortality rate in the US.

This is from the CDC site TODAY:



Things are moving so fast, it's now up to 1.37% of confirmed cases, but to put things in perspective, it is among the lowest rates among developed countries of any size.

you don't actually know the number of total cases all you know is the number of positive test results.
That's the morality rate among confirmed cases and at this point that's be best estimate we have of how dangerous the virus is.

Then why is the death rate for flu at 23000 and counting just this year alone?


flu 23000

And it's just a guess.

And you'll notice in the OP he said TOTAL cases not total positive test results

The death rate will be higher in the next coming months as the hospitals won’t be able to take care of all the sick. Also ventilators are important, but for every ventilator you need a qualified hospital worker to run it. That’s why the shortage of PPE is so important. Hospital workers can’t afford to get sick.
