I have just done some statistical comparison between the death rate for the coronavirus vs. the death rate for the flu in 2018. There have been 140,049 cases of coronavirus and 5,123 deaths. The death rate comes to 3%. This is the same rate that the WHO has claimed. There were 35.5 million cases of flu in 2018 and approximately 34,200 deaths which comes out to a death rate of 9%.
Even going country by country taking into account the varying actors such as average age of the population, the death rate for flu is substantially higher.
Excuse me but what is all the hype?
When we had the SARS virus, during the Bush Administration, there was not this much hubbub. Unless I miss my guess this is a “crisis” being manufactured by the media and politicians as opposed to real life facts and statistics. Could it be that the media and the politicians are using this “crisis” to attack the current administration of Donald Trump?
I think this statistics and the facts speak for themselves.
