That isn't how you calculate the mortality rate IMO.

The problem with this measure of mortality:  (dead_amount / (infected_amount))  is that you're speculating that the infected won't die.  

With a situation like this, a disease that is aggressively expanding, I think that a better method of evaluating it might be to look at the death to recovery rate:  (dead_amount / (recovered_amount + dead_amount)).

I think OP's position is actually far different from Trumps. Trump is actually taking the virus very seriously, unlike OP.

Sorry my bad on the calculation. Calculators arent what they used to be..

Rate is actually around 1.5%

MODS HALP!

 

 

Please refer to Cami's last flu thread where he admitted to not knowing the difference between number of deceased and mortality rate.

Lol

My god this math.

Either you’re trolling on a very fucked up topic to do so, or you’re so fucking stupid, you can’t do basic math. Either way, should be banned for spreading misinformation on an important topic.

There's not good way to calculate it. The mild cases don't even make the books. Kids seem to be largely unaffected (sure there are exceptions) but they carry the fuck out of like the rest of us. How do you even include that in the study? They are infected, they just don't get sick.

Sagiv. You’re also assuming that confirmed cases are the only people that had the virus. 
Confirmed cases does not include people who had c19 or have it now and don’t show symptoms or didn’t get tested and have cleared or are clearing the virus without a test

Not true either. It's somewhere in between since people will die before they recover, so both methods would be flawed in opposite direction.


None of it would be accurate though since both recovered amount and infected amount are just confirmed cases whereas dead is confirmed cases too but likely every death is counted whereas we have no idea how many infected or recovered people there are until they do population wide testing or reliable contact tracing and testing(i think most countries have given up on this approach)

Please let this be your last covid thread, cami
