Coronavirus death rate of just over 4% is much higher than the flu

The latest numbers Ask The Doctor has been able to gather puts the coronavirus death rate at over 4%. Contrary to what American Vice President Mike Pence says, the risk of contracting the coronavirus is increasing everyday.

Over 100,000 people are now infected with the coronavirus which has killed more than 4000 people globally. This puts the death rate at over 4% which is much higher than the seasonal flu which has a death rate of just 1%.

World Health Organization’s director, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says the death rate is likely to decrease as more people are diagnosed and we are seeing some milder cases of COVID-19, many of which are going undiagnosed.
