World Health Organization just Announced the Wuhan Virus Mortality Rate is 3.4% — As this website reported a week ago
World health officials said Tuesday the mortality rate for COVID-19 is 3.4% globally, higher than previous estimates of about 2%.
“Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a press briefing at the agency’s headquarters in Geneva.
On Feb. 26th this site had the same conclusion:
Total Infected: 82,166
Total Dead: 2,804
Mortality Rate: 2,804/82,166 x 100 = 3.4% mortality rate.
This means the Wuhan virus has a mortality rate of 34 times that of influenza since the influenza mortality rate is 0.1%.
34 x 0.1 = 3.4, the most up-to-date mortality rate of the Wuhan virus.
The mortality rate of the Wuhan virus has been climbing over the two weeks. It held at 2.0% for most of January and February but has now climbed to 3.4%. This means that out of 100 people, 3.4 infected with the virus will die.
