The death rate for the flu in the United States is an average of 63,730 deaths per year.

According to Right Diagnosis Death rate extrapolations for USA for Flu: 63,729 per year, 5,310 per month, 1,225 per week, 174 per day, 7 per hour.

On Thursday HHS Assistant Secretary Admiral Brett Giroir told reporters,

“The best estimates now of the overall mortality rate for COVID-19 is somewhere between 0.1% and 1%. That’s lower than you heard probably in many reports … it’s not likely in the range of 2 to 3%.”

This puts coronavirus on par with a typical flu epidemic to something slightly higher — NOT something like a SARS or MERS virus with a much higher mortality rate.

President Trump was right.
