Most studies put the rate between 0.5% and 1.0%

Covid-19 kills from around 0.3% to 1.5% of people infected:

Most studies put the rate between 0.5% and 1.0%, meaning that for every 1,000 people who get infected, from five to 10 would die on average.

COVID-19 IFR by Study

More than 14.7 million people have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 across the globe, and over 609,000 people have died, with nearly a quarter of the fatalities in the U.S., according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. That means that among confirmed global cases, roughly 4.2% of those people died.

The percentage of deaths among people with confirmed infections is higher than the percentage of deaths among infections overall, researchers say, because so many milder and asymptomatic Covid-19 cases go missed.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has estimated that for every known case of Covid-19, roughly 10 more went unrecorded through the beginning of May. From March to early May, the total number of infections was likely six to 24 times greater than the number of reported cases depending on the state, the agency said Tuesday in a paper published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.


An analysis of 26 different studies estimating the infection-fatality rate in different parts of the globe found an aggregate estimate of about 0.68%, with a range of 0.53% to 0.82%, according to a report posted in July on the preprint server medRxiv, which hasn’t yet been reviewed by other researchers.

    This is truly another Shoah.

  2. Eddie says:

    Seeing as covid disproportionately impacts the old, isn’t reporting the average cIFR at best misleading? It would be more informative and useful if they reported by the age demographic. For example, I’ve read that children under 15 years old are more likely to be hit by lightning than die from covid!

  3. McChuck says:

    Only one in six of those infected will become ill.
    Only one in six of those who become ill will require hospitalization.
    Only one in six of those hospitalized will die.

    Eddie – A grand total of 28 people under the age of 21 have died while testing positive for COVID-19. For that, we must cancel all of society indefinitely.

    McChuck, it boggles my mind who is advising the governments and the illogical thinking processes they are using!

    It seems that the Germans are starting to get mad at this whole pretence.

    I think corona was engineered and it’s present state it is evolving into a less lethal form. A virus weapon expert said that engineered viruses are less stable. I believe it was more lethal in the beginning.

    I have a good friend that got corona. He was a paramedic. I tried to get him to quit work before it ramped up. He got it from a patient. He knew he was sick but hesitated going into the hospital as he felt he might not get out of there. He only went in when he started having a racing heart and he got the head of the paramedics he worked with to get a Doctor he knew to personally look after him. He said he thought he was going to die from it. He was in the hospital for a week and lost a lot of strength. He’s a bit older but he’s in good shape. Doesn’t drink, smoke, eats right, exercises and it still knocked him down. It did not kill him though and he’s fine, but weak, last time I talked to him.

    The Asians did a much better job of containment than the western countries. The medical establishment in the US acted as if they wanted to kill off as many as possible.

    I wonder just what the purpose of this was. The whole thing is fairly ominous. There’s a lot of spooky things going on. Like the rationing of cash and change. Not good. Jews funding BLM and defunding police. Not good. All this stupid talk about Alien UFO craft(there is no such fucking thing but I have no doubt the gov. has made “inertia drives” that don’t expel gasses). Not good. Also lots of talk about EMP and now I’m seeing news reports that even though the Sun has low sunspots it could still belch out a huge solar flare. Not good. I wonder if the powers that be have finally decided to shut the lights out. I hope they all are killed if they do.

    San J: “I wonder just what the purpose of this was.”

    One hypothesis is that this was a deliberate economic attack engineered by China’s leadership. They read Sun Tzu, and know the importance of subterfuge & deception in war. That is even more significant today, where any actual shooting war risks going nuclear, with unacceptable costs to China.

    “Know your enemy”, says Sun Tzu — and the Chinese understand us much better than we understand them. They knew that Western politicians subject to pressure from the bought-and-paid-for Western media would have to ape China’s self-inflicted wound of Lock Downs in Wuhan. Those Lock Downs have done much more damage to the service-dependent economies of the West than to the manufacturing-dependent economy of China.

    End result will be a drastically weakened West, which will present much less of a threat to China. Someone somewhere in China is getting the Mao Tse Tung Hero of the Revolution Medal for dreaming up this innovative successful attack.

  7. Sam J. says:

    “…One hypothesis is that this was a deliberate economic attack engineered by China’s leadership…”

    I don’t believe this. It’s silly to even remotely believe this. They lost lots of people and lost face.

    Incomprehensible that the Chinese did this on purpose. Nada, didn’t happen.

  8. RLVC says:

    Yes, the Chinese movie industry is on a trajectory to world dominance.

    Besides this, if China is smart, it is funding American movies that flatter American prowess. China may or may not be funding whatever English-language movies that China may or may not be funding, but this is not what we are talking about.

    We are talking about domestic, Chinese-language movies — poorly dubbed, if they are successful enough to make it out of the Chinese market.

    And so yours is a rather poor explanation of why the Chinese state is training the Chinese people to respond to the command authority of the United Nations.

  9. Gavin Longmuir says:

    Sam J said earlier: “I think corona was engineered ..”.

    Presumably by the Chinese? But why would the Chinese engineer a virus which turns out to be not particularly serious, comparable in lethality to the flu with which the world has lived for centuries? Where & when & why did the Chinese ever plan to use their engineered virus?

    The great damage is being done not by the virus itself, but by the Lock Downs inspired by China’s response and copied on a grander scale by foolish Western politicians. And the end result is that China absorbed a slap on the face from the virus, while the West took a sledge hammer to its own gonads. Advantage – China.

    It is far from “Incomprehensible that the Chinese did this on purpose.” I agree that does not prove the Covid scam was indeed a duplicitous disguised economic attack on the West by China’s leaders. But it would provide a rational explanation of what we have all seen.

  10. Sam J. says:

    “…Presumably by the Chinese? But why would the Chinese engineer a virus which turns out to be not particularly serious, comparable in lethality to the flu with which the world has lived for centuries? Where & when & why did the Chinese ever plan to use their engineered virus?…”

    I only see two rational possibilities.

    1. Chinese doing weapons research accidentally released virus.
    2. Jews did it to attack China while not caring at all who else got it. Maybe even hoping for many US deaths.

    #2 seems more likely as Jews have a record of murdering vast numbers of people and having zero fucks about any lives of anyone not Jewish. See 9-11 as one little example. There was also an immediate release in Iran and the Jews proclaiming they just “happened” to be researching the exact same virus and would have a vaccine in weeks. Quite a Cohencidence don’t you think.

    The record of it being engineered has been attested to by five different virus research laboratories. Admittedly they would say it was engineered then immediately withdraw their claims.

    That it’s lethality declined rapidly has been explained by a former virus weapons researcher in the US who said that weaponized viruses rapidly change. They are not stable.

    I know someone personally who got corona. It didn’t kill him but it was much worse than the flu. I can’t say for sure but it appeared that the amount of deaths in Wuhan was very high such that something, it was said to be bodies burning, was creating such a haze that the Sun was dimmed.

  11. RLVC says:

    China has no reason to wage economic war on America. It is a few short years away from total technological dominance. Besides, there is no way that China could “force” many months of this ongoing mass house arrest in the face of a fake phenomenon.

    Obviously, someone else is doing something else.

    But we have learned that “the economy” is nothing but a Boomer hoax, so that’s something.

  12. Gavin Longmuir says:

    RLVC: “Obviously, someone else is doing something else.”

    Don’t be shy, RLVC. Name names! Point fingers! Give us your best guess at who is doing what to whom, and why.
