Here you go my friend, Dr Fauci himself is one of the authors of this one in the New England Journal of Medicine.
On the basis of a case definition requiring a diagnosis of pneumonia, the currently reported case fatality rate is approximately 2%.4 In another article in the Journal, Guan et al.5 report mortality of 1.4% among 1099 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; these patients had a wide spectrum of disease severity. If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%.
This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.2
We now have multiple highly credible sources – New England Journal of Medicine, Oxford University, European Mortality Monitor, the UK government, German doctors and scientists etc – saying it looks like it has a mortality rate of .01% or less. Same as the common flu!
MD Creekmore, thanks for being a critical thinker and not falling for the hysteria. There’s another agenda at work here. I suspect the intent was to crash the economy and ultimately force vaccines on everyone. These are dangerous times. Be safe, trust in God for greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
Hello, I’m M.D. Creekmore. I’ve been interested in self-reliance topics for over 25 years. I’m the author of four books that you can find at Amazon.com as well as Barnes and Noble. Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about prepping, homesteading, and self-reliance topics through first-hand experience and now I want to share what I’ve learned with you.
