Covid Survivor Rates


Active member
According to the WHO corona virus dashboard: as of Apr 19, 2021 there were
approximately 140,886,773 confirmed cases and 3,012,251 deaths.

That translates to roughly a 97.86% survival rate. (close enough to be called 98%
in dumbed-down math.)

So even when people come down sick with the covid thingy, their chances of
getting over it are very good, i.e. excellent.

NOTE: The percentage given is global. The survival rate relative to USA cases is
likely to be higher seeing as how American sterilization, sanitation, hygiene, and
diet are, on average, quite a bit better than some areas of the world that I could

I agree that it is dangerous. A 2% death rate sounds low, until it happens to someone we know and love.
