Who Contracts Coronavirus?
As the number of deaths from coronavirus outbreaks increases, researchers have said that the chances of people dying from the virus are very low.
Researchers say that between five and 40 coronavirus cases in 1,000 would result in death, and their best guess is nine in 1,000, or about 1%.
But all this depends on different factors: your age, general health, sex, and the health system you are in.
According to the United Kingdom’s Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, the government’s very best assessment is that the death rate is 2% or even lower.

It is very hard. Even the counting of cases is very tricky.
They do not count most cases of most viruses because people who have mild symptoms are not likely to visit the doctor.
According to research that Imperial College did, this
This is due to the fact that different countries do not handle the mild and severe 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 are the elderly, people who are not well, and maybe men.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said the virus appears to particularly affect those over 60 and people who are already ill.
In the first big analysis of more than 44,000 cases from China, the death rate was ten times higher for elderly pipo compared to the middle-aged.
Still, from the analysis, the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention found that the death rates are low for those who are under 30, where they recorded only eight deaths out of 4,500 cases.
Deaths are at least five times more common among people with diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure, or breathing problem.
The study found out that the deaths among men are a little bit higher compared to women. Men are more likely to die (2.8%) than women (1.7%).
