It's a bad thing. My grandfather's first wife died in 1918 of the Spanish Influenza, leaving two young boys. I am crossing my fingers for China that they can get a handle on this before too many more die.Those who have survived with mild cases are in the larger number, then counted as the survivor population and not the ongoing infected population.Jim, the 20% death rate is for the small number who had severe cases and were hospitalized. The vast majority are "mild cases" and their "outcomes" will probably not be monitored--just like most of us who recover from a cold/flu.
So far 4,000 people have recovered, which counts mild cases as well.
There are over 7,300 cases in ICU, and deaths and recovery cases come from that.
There are at this time over 5,000 cases of recovery and death, or a disease outcome, positive 80% (recovery) or 20% negative (death). Most of the people contracting this disease take some time to resolve the disease, about a week and a half.
