Can someone please explain this - 19% of closed cases are deaths? This has gradually been going up over the last few days. Is it as concerning as it seems?
...the death rate is approximately 5% which doesn't sound anywhere near as bad as 19%.
Yep, I've edited it, but you managed to quote before it changed. I had my decimal point in the wrong place!It would be great if it were just 0.05%, but I think your factors are out a little.
TBH, even the 5% figure is inaccurate, as these are only tested cases, there are plenty more people in the world with CV19 that don’t form a part of these stats (I know of at least two personally! ) - I believe the accepted percentage of deaths due CV19 is somewhere between 2-3.5%
Shhh... I’ve edited my post now - no-one will ever know!Yep, I've edited it, but you managed to quote before it changed. I had my decimal point in the wrong place!
I don't think we'll ever know the true figures because there is so little testing going on and also many people will only display mild symptoms (or none at all) which will not require a doctor or hospital visit.
Interesting article. Damned if you, damned if you don’t basically.This Dr explains my thoughts far better than I could and we should hope he's on to something. Fingers crossed.
