coming from the article.
On the basis of a case definition requiring a diagnosis of pneumonia, the currently reported case fatality rate can be approximately 2%.4 In another article from the Journal, Guan et al.5 report mortality of 1.4% among 1099 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; these patients had a wide spectrum of disease severity. If one assumes that will the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases can be repeatedly as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This particular suggests that will the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which incorporates a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 as well as also 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% as well as also 36%, respectively.2
