  • However, the majority of COVID-19 cases and deaths have occurred in mainland China, which has reported 80,026 cases and 2,912 deaths.
    The high death rate in countries such as Iran (4.4% based on the current number of confirmed cases) could also be related to officials in that country underestimating the number of actual cases. If coronavirus infections are actually higher in that country, the fatality rate would obviously fall.
    How the coronavirus is transmitted:
    South Korea has 4,335 cases and 26 deaths; Italy has 1,694 cases and 34 deaths; and Iran surpassed 1,500, with 66 deaths
  • why some patients fare worse than others
    A paper published in JAMA reviews a China-based sample of 72,000 COVID-19 cases, which suggests dramatic variations in the death rate of the illness
    No deaths occurred in those aged 9 years and younger, but cases in those aged 70 to 79 years had an 8% fatality rate and those aged 80 years and older had a fatality rate of 14.8%, according to a study of Chinese coronavirus cases released this month.
    As the coronavirus spreads, scientists are learning more about the disease.s fatality rate.
    There were 89,197 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 3,048 deaths, primarily in China.s Hubei Province, and two reported deaths in the U.S., according to a the latest tally published by the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering.s Centers for Systems Science and Engineering.
    The medical journal JAMA released a paper this month analyzing data from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention on 72,314 coronavirus cases in mainland China, the figure as of Feb. 11, the largest such sample in a study of this kind.
    The sample.s overall case-fatality rate was 2.3%, higher than World Health Organization official 0.7% rate
  • One patient spread the virus to at least 10 health-care workers and four patients at a hospital in Wuhan, that study concluded.
    .In this single-center case series of 138 hospitalized patients with confirmed novel coronavirus.infected pneumonia in Wuhan, China, presumed hospital-related transmission of 2019-nCoV was suspected in 41% of patients, 26% of patients received ICU care, and [the] mortality was 4.3%..
    Maciej Boni, an associate professor of biology, at Pennsylvania State University, wrote in the online science magazine LiveScience that the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic initially overestimated the final fatality rate, while the SARS fatality rate rose as the virus spread.
    Initially, scientists estimated a fatality rate of 7%
  • Thailand announced its first death from the disease, over a month after confirming its first cases.
    The fatality rate of the novel coronavirus so far appears to be a fraction of that of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (9.6%) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (34.4%)
