The American Center for Disease Control (CDC) now estimates that approximately 24 million Americans have been infected with the virus. This is 10 time higher than previously thought.
This means, according to an article in the New England Journal of Medicine that number of people who have died from the Coronavirus is “considerably less than 1%”.
Studies have shown that 80% of people who come down with COVID show no or minimal symptoms, meaning they don’t even know they are sick and consequently were never tested.
WND explains what this means:
In fact, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top White House infectious disease expert, co-authored an article published March 26 in the New England Journal of Medicine predicting the case fatality rate for the coronavirus would turn out to be like that of a “severe seasonal influenza.”
However, WHO created a panic when it wrongly predicted early in the pandemic a death rate of 3.4% based on flawed computer projections.
Studies are also revealing that age and health are risk factors when it comes to COVID. So instead of quarantining the whole nation, the governments should have focussed on those most at risk, the elderly and those with underlying health issues.
