HHS Assistant Secretary: Estimates of Coronavirus Mortality Rate “Somewhere between .1% and 1%” — Or Similar to a Flu Virus (VIDEO)

The death rate for the flu in the United States is an average of 63,730 deaths per year.

According to Right Diagnosis Death rate extrapolations for USA for Flu: 63,729 per year, 5,310 per month, 1,225 per week, 174 per day, 7 per hour.

On Thursday HHS Assistant Secretary Admiral Brett Giroir told reporters,

“The best estimates now of the overall mortality rate for COVID-19 is somewhere between 0.1% and 1%. That’s lower than you heard probably in many reports … it’s not likely in the range of 2 to 3%.”

This puts coronavirus on par with a typical flu epidemic to something slightly higher — NOT something like a SARS or MERS virus with a much higher mortality rate.
