Spain has 219,764 total cases of coronavirus. It is reporting 22,524 deaths, 92,355 recoveries and 104,885 active cases. Of its closed cases, which is half of all cases, 80% were recoveries and 20% were deaths.
Italy has 192,994 total cases of coronavirus. It is reporting 25,969 deaths, 60,498 recoveries and 106,527 active cases. Of its closed cases, which is about 45% of all cases, 70% were recoveries and 30% were deaths.
France has 159,828 total cases of coronavirus. It is reporting 22,245 deaths, 43,493 recoveries and 94,090 active cases. Of its closed cases, which is about 41% of all cases, 66% were recoveries and 32% were deaths.
Where is the United States? We have only cleared about 17.5% of our cases and we currently stand at 68% recoveries to 32% deaths. The global recovery rate of 1 million closed cases of coronavirus in the entire world is 80% with 20% of cases having resulted in death.
If we cleared all 925,038 cases in the United States and assumed a 20% death rate which is the global average, the death toll would be 185,007.
How far north of “just the flu, bro” will the coronavirus death toll ultimately go before the 2020 election? In order to stay below 61,000 deaths, which is the 2017-2018 flu season record, the death rate in the United States of active confirmed cases would have to drop from 32% to 1% in the next four days and no one else would have to get infected and die from this point forward.
Look at this way: March is now history. Of the 164,000 people who got the coronavirus in the United States in March and had a confirmed positive test, 32% didn’t make it.
Note: The 20% global death rate of confirmed cases has held steady for a month. The one million global closed cases is a third of all cases in the world.
