Pretty sure I read the other day Corona is 20 times deadlier than the flu.
Ten studies were included in Meta‐analysis, including a total number of 50466 patients with 2019‐nCoV infection. Meta‐analysis shows that, among these patients, the incidence of fever was 89.1%, the incidence of cough was 72.2%, and the incidence of muscle soreness or fatigue was 42.5%. The incidence of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) was 14.8%, the incidence of abnormal chest computer tomography (CT) was 96.6%, the percentage of severe cases in all infected cases was 18.1%, and the case fatality rate of patients with 2019‐nCoV infection was 4.3%.

Trump is in danger too then. Unhealthy diet, bad shape and 70+ of age.

HOW DARE HE CITE FACTS?! Doesn't he know that facts can hurt people's feelings?
Obviously. That’s why he’s lying.
The U.S. healthcare system is actually ranked 27th in the world. Colombia in South America has better healthcare than America does.

I'm about to have a gall bladder removal and umbilical hernia repair done laparoscopically at a top-notch clinic that is recognized by the Canadian national health care system as accredited. It's not cheap for a typical Mexican laborer and they'd more likely be enmeshed in the national system, but for this gringo, it's ridiculously inexpensive compared to what it'd cost stateside (total cost probably less than what your deductible would be) and the quality of care is at least what you'd get stateside and, I'd dare say, in some repects probably better.

So the questions then becomes, how many times does the disease take a severe course that would require hospital care as opposed to a mild to moderate course where you beat it at home?
You can bet they weren't wasting space for mild to moderately ill patients in China and may even have been sending severely ill ones home in some cases when things were at their worst.

- The 1.4% mortality rate that's projected by WHO is based largely on the cases in China. In countries with better medical standards, like the US, the mortality rate should be lower
Well, 2 dead out of ..64 cases I believe, is higher than 1.4%
