The whole world is right now under quarantine and trying to be safe by not getting diagnosed with coronavirus. A recent report from the CDC shows that more than 35% of the coronavirus patients who have tested positive did not show symptoms. Even though everyone is told to look after the symptoms like having fever, cough, headache, and not able to smell or test, now people with no symptoms are testing positive for coronavirus. CDC said 0.4% of people who show signs and have covid-19 is likely going to die because of this deadly virus. The CDC said they are learning more about this trend which is spreading very quickly, and causing people lots of problems.
This estimate is done based on real data collected by the agency before April 29, and they are continuously studying it. CDC says people aged above 65, and have symptoms have 1.3% chances of dying because of coronavirus. On the other hand, people aged under 49, and have symptoms have 0.05% chances of dying from this disease. After considering all the cases, the study reveals that overall, 1% of total symptomatic cases are likely going to die. Some experts are saying even though these numbers seem to be reasonable; the mortality rate is quite low.
CDC health officials are saying that these numbers are quite optimistic considering the current situation, which is causing more problems than ever before. However, some experts think this data shows a shallow rate of fatality as compared to what we are witnessing right now. Thousands of people have died so far because of COVID-19 virus, and this number is increasing significantly. CDC also said these numbers are only for planning purposes, and not be considered as the criteria for prediction.
