Studies show coronavirus death rate is LOWER than the flu

Study the above graph carefully. It shows deaths from all causes (by week) in Arizona over the past 3 years.

There was a deadly flu outbreak in 2017-18 which killed some 80,000 Americans. The graph suggests that the flu death rate in 2018 was likely worse than the death rate from coronavirus thus far this year.

As more data come in, it becomes clear that death rates from coronavirus is similar to, or lower than, the 2018 flu outbreak. The CDC admitted this a month ago.

In late April, antibodies testing in Santa Clara, California found coronavirus mortality rates were essentially the same as seasonal flu.

For those under age 70, the infection death rate may be as low as FOUR-ONE-HUNDREDTHS (4/100ths) OF ONE PERCENT (far lower than in typical flu outbreaks) according to a study by John Ioannidis, a professor of epidemiology at Stanford University.

Now a new study by scientists at Wake Forest University shows the coronavirus death rate is EVEN LOWER than what CDC admitted last month. The study of antibodies in the blood of people in parts of North Carolina found 14% have already been infected with coronavirus. The death rate may be as low or lower than 1/10th of 1%.
