That’s a .01 percent death rate.
Equal to the NORMAL SEASONAL FLU rate
164K death out of 5000K cases. That’s a death rate of 3.24% — seasonal flu is about 0.1%. So Covid is about 30 times more lethal.
That’s apparent in the fact that 164K have died — even if one says the numbers are exaggerated by 100%, that’s more than the MAXIMUM number who have died of the flu in any year (2018 was the highest with 71K dead) - and this has been just 5 months.
It’s more serious than the flu. It’s not as deadly as Ebola or the Spanish flu, but it’s way more dangerous than the common flu.
