Democrats and Leftists have slammed President Trump for saying the Wuhan Virus mortality rate is probably closer to 1% and not the higher number that some people feared. But according to various reports today, our Commander-in-Chief is probably right.
ABC News says, in a web article published this morning, that it's possible the Wuhan virus "isn’t as fatal as most people think." They also report: "Children and adults have done extremely well in terms of recovery."
A TIME magazine story, also published this morning on its website, warns that the early mortality estimates for the illness "are not exact." Why?
"One key reason," TIME explains, "[is] people with milder versions of the illness are underrepresented in official case counts, since they may not be sick enough to seek medical attention or realize they have anything more than a cold."
Also worth noting is that a large majority of the Wuhan Virus' fatal cases are among older men and women. A true "control" setting, a quarantined cruise ship in Japan, revealed:
"Of the 705 passengers who tested positive for the virus on the Diamond Princess, six died -- which is a death rate of less than 1%. All of the patients who died onboard were more than 70 years old." (ABC News)
