Cómo se comparan las tasas de mortalidad del coronavirus

March 17, 2020 - La Organización Mundial de la Salud ha calculado que el coronavirus mata a cerca de 3,4 porciento de las personas que infecta, pero la tasa de muertes varía ampliamente entre los países con grandes brotes de la enfermedad

The death rate is a calculation of the number of known deaths out of the total number of confirmed cases. But because the disease progresses over a period of weeks and the case numbers are constantly changing, the rate is not static and likely to continue evolving, according to Business Insider website.

The death rate also varies across age groups, with older people and those who have preexisting conditions seemingly much more likely to die from COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus.
