Wuhan Death Rate From Coronavirus Lower Than Previously Estimated

Imagine my surprise.

 The death rate from the new coronavirus may have been lower than previously believed in Wuhan, China the city where it apparently originated, according to a new study, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The study, published Thursday in the journal Nature Medicine, found that the death rate among people who had symptoms was 1.4% in Wuhan, China, as of Feb. 29.

 Also, notice that this is among people with symptoms, if those without symptoms were added, the death rate is probably at worst only around 0.7%. We are getting close to an indication that COVID-19 is no more lethal than flu.

The global propaganda machine, the World Health Organization, reported last month that the mortality rate in Wuhan was 5.8%.
