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
Fauci also said the country could experience “between 100,000 and 200,000” deaths and “millions of cases” of coronavirus.
But he added “I don’t want to be held to that” because the pandemic is “such a moving target.”

Italy had 178 deaths from H1N1. They are a bit over 10K with Covid-19. The threat is less you say. OK.
