But the percentage of deaths relative to infections holds steady at slightly more than 2%.



It is what it is.

It has been jumping about 10% per day for the last week. Diagnosed infections had been jumping by 20% ten days ago. That might have been even higher if they had more kits to test.

The number of deaths outside China has been steady for a few days. That could imply that other countries have caught up with diagnosis and treatment.

Do you know how very lethal 2% is for something that could literally infect the entire planet?

The Spanish Flu aka: H1N1

It infected 500 million people around the world or about 27% of the then world population of about 1.8 billion, including people on remote Pacific islands and in the Arctic. The death toll is estimated to have been 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million (about 3 to 6 percent of Earth's population at the time), making it one of the deadliest epidemics in human history.[

7,763,000,000 * 0.02 = over 155 million people. Sanitation and healthcare improvements make it easier to avoid 10-20% case-to-fatality rates, and it's unlikely the virus will achieve total infection rates, but it's still a scary baseline. By comparison, HIV-AIDS has killed about 32 million people worldwide since 1981.

Jump yesterday was from the Chinese government changing how they diagnose a case.
