Covid 19 (Corona virus)

Covid19 has so far been considered much more dangerous than the flu, particularly on the basis of information from the Chinese city of Wuhan. However, a new study by researchers from Japan and the USA has now come to the conclusion that the mortality of Covid19 even in Wuhan was only 0.04% to 0.12% and therefore even lower than that of seasonal flu, which has a mortality rate of about 0.1%. As a reason for the apparently highly overestimated mortality of Covid19, the researchers suspect that only a small number of cases were originally recorded in Wuhan, as the disease was probably asymptomatic or mild in many people.
