Coronavirus

COVID-19 death rate (uncertain)

This table shows the crude case fatality rate so far.
Despite data pouring in from many countries, there’s still a wide range of estimates for the coronavirus mortality rate, from as low as 1 in 1000 to as high as 1 in 30. What is clear is that there is no one answer: the risk depends on your age, your sex, your health and the care you receive if you become severely ill. In other words, death rates will vary from place to place and over the course of the pandemic.
The number of deaths shown should be interpreted with caution. For now we can't say for sure what the infection fatality rates are. We know a lot more when antibody testing reveals the missed cases.
