Statistical analysis accounts for such discrepancies but, in general, the greater the numbers over larger geographical areas, the more accurate they become.

I'd say you're spot on there based on latest figures.
According to the released figures, China now has known outcomes for close to 90% of their confirmed cases and the mortality rate is currently about 4.5% (and dropping) of the known outcomes. IE the China figure is the best indicator for the time being.
The rest of the world is the other way round atm with only 10% of confirmed cases having a known outcome so any stats based on those numbers are all over the place and basically useless for making any predictions.
