Case-Fatality Risk Estimates for COVID-19 Calculated by Using a Lag Time for Fatality

Case-Fatality Risk Estimates for COVID-19 Calculated by Using a Lag Time for Fatality

Nick Wilson et al. Emerg Infect Dis. .

Abstract

We estimated the case-fatality risk for coronavirus disease cases in China (3.5%); China, excluding Hubei Province (0.8%); 82 countries, territories, and areas (4.2%); and on a cruise ship (0.6%). Lower estimates might be closest to the true value, but a broad range of 0.25%-3.0% probably should be considered.

Keywords: 2019 novel coronavirus disease; COVID-19; SARS-CoV-2; case-fatality risk; coronaviruses; pandemic; respiratory diseases; severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2; viruses; zoonoses.
