Covid Death Rate
As the number of deaths from covid outbreaks increases, researchers have said the chances of people dying from the virus are very low.
Researchers said between 5 and 40 coronavirus cases in 1,000 would result in death, and their best guess is 9 in 1,000, or about 1%.
But all this depends on different factors: sex, your age, general health, and the health system you are in.

It is very hard. Even the counting of cases is very tricky.
Do not count most cases of most viruses because people who have mild symptoms would not be likely to visit the doctor.
According to research that Imperial College did, this is because different countries either have the knowledge or do not have the knowledge to notice mild and hard cases.
The World Health Organization said most patients have only mild symptoms, and the death rate appears to be between 2% and 5%.
Some types of people are more likely to die if they contract the coronavirus, and they include the elderly, people who are not well, and maybe men.
On Sunday, the World Health Organization (WHO) said the virus appeared to particularly affect those over 60 and those who are already ill.
In the first big analysis of more than 44,000 cases from China, the death rate is ten times higher for elderly people compared to the middle-aged.
Still, from the analysis, the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention found that the covid death rates are low for those who are under 30, where they recorded only eight deaths out of 4,500 cases.
Covid death is at least five times more common among people with high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart or breathing problems.
The study found that the deaths among men are a little bit higher compared to those of women. Men are more likely to die (2.8%) than women (1.7%).
