In the U.S., the fatality rate among confirmed cases is around 4.2%. It's likely a lot lower than because because of asymptomatic people but still will be much higher than the seasonal flu.
The flu numbers of course should be lower because there is a vaccine for it and a majority of people do get flu vaccines.
There is also emerging evidence that the Coronavirus is airborne which explains why it's more easily transmitted.
That’s true. Meanwhile, public policies are getting more, not less, restrictive....in response to the higher infection numbers.
I’m more with you than not. But I’m just trying to feel which way the winds seem to be blowing.
Except the recognised metric used is mortality rate... and go find me a "normal" flu season with this volume of death or prolonged widespread outbreak. Even using your death rate it’s about 3 times deadlier then flu.
Please provide your source for the claim about a greater chance of death by flu?
It’s actually very true a virus with a 0.02% death rate is actually very comparable to the flu. Younger people with out comprised immune systems actually have a greater chance of dying from the flu than this virus.
