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.
