Corona Virus Mortality Rate Change

by John P. Reisman last modified Mar 26, 2020 04:48 PM
Originally the World Health Organization (WHO) said the mortality rate was 3.4% for Covid-19. The rate began to change as more countries reported in numbers and the picture became more clear. When the report was recorded the rate was pushing up towards 4%.
Corona Virus Mortality Rate Change

ON March 7, 2020, the mortality data shifted higher.

Now, as of March 26th, 2020, the global mortality rate has risen to 4.7%. The rate is different in different countries. The data indicate that medical capacity and technology may be a factor. There has been some speculation that genomics 'may' play a role. There is also the possibility that age and vulnerability demographics may be playing a role. We will know more as science analysts gain more knowledge and understanding. Nevertheless, the global rate is still rising. 

America has a lower rate, as of March 26, 2020, it stands at 1.43%. The risk is that because of delays by the Trump administration, America may have a faster spread than it otherwise would have had. The key to NOT overwhelming the hospital care system is in slowing the spread. Most of the professionals have indicated that the delays will most likely result in wider/larger/faster spread.
