A Case Fatality Rate Primer

In epidemiology, a case fatality rate (CFR) is the proportion of deaths from a certain disease divided by the total number of people diagnosed with the disease for a certain period of time.

Currently, the number of deaths from COVID-19 is 4661 and the number of infected is 126,782. The CFR is 3.67%. I do not understand why our politicians and right wing pundits cannot do simple math. Or is it that they don’t think we can handle the truth? At least the President is no longer comparing this to the regular flu.

    David, Thank you for all your efforts to use your website to present factual information and your good analysis of WuFlu. God bless.

    I am not stirring any pot by stating facts. The reason for the post is the ignorance currently shown on full display by the media. I have heard varying reports of 0.4% to 1% CFR on the news. Tell me why they are misreporting the truth but you already know the reason.

    Italy has a 6.6% CFR and they have one of the best medical systems in the world. Tired of the trolling. Banned.

        The information concerning how to deal with people concerning COVID-19 detailed on tonight’s Chris Martenson video is helpful. We have to come together and face this crisis as our forefathers did. With honor, compassion and vigilance.
