Director General of World Health Organization Severely Overstated the Fatality Rate of the Coronavirus Leading to the Greatest Global Panic in History

The problem with the coronavirus numbers is that people who get it, don't know it. 
The feel sick a few days and get over it.  These people are not being counted in the statistics.  So officials are making Covid-19 to be more lethal and scary that is really.  We are being manipulated.
GatewayPundit reports the controversial Ethiopian politician and Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, claimed in a press conference in early March that the fatality rate for the coronavirus was many multiples that of the fatality rate of the common flu.

 This egregiously false premise has led to the greatest panic in world history.

  1. Um, no.

    Gateway Pundit has lost their minds.

    The fatality rates for seasonal flu has been posted at 0.1% for-freaking-ever.
    And the fatality rate for coronavirus infections in general has ranged from 2-4%, in published journal studies, since long before the current head of WHO even had that job.

    Nobody has overstated anything.

    If, by some wild coincidence, this coronavirus outbreak is magically much milder than every other one in recorded medical history, that would be fantastic news, but either way, it won't have anything to do with whatever the guy at WHO said, now, tomorrow, last year, or ever.

    And if it's so low:
    Why did China lockdown nearly 1B people, and weld some of them in their buildings to keep them from coming out?
    Why is Italy's healthcare system in total meltdown, if this is so mild a disease?

    This is not all headless panic.
    If, consistent with every bit of evidence, this has a CFR of "only" 2%, that's as many as 6M deaths in the US if it goes everywhere, to everyone, and another 10-20M who'll need hospitalization. We can't handle 1/10th of that, and we'll be Italy, if that happens.

    Gateway Pundit has had some great newsbreaks over the years.

    But whoever they have on the case for this pandemic is either clinically insane, a moron, or chain-smoking crack and methamphetamine.

    I cannot tell which, at this point.
    Whichever it is, I would advise sourcing your info on the Kung Flu from elsewhere, until they pull their heads out.

    Best wishes.

  2. We have a difference in opinion. But, I won't prevent you from making yours.

  3. The real problem with the mortality rate is underreporting. Many
    people shrug it off as a bad cold or mild Flu and never seek medical
    attention. This skews the mortality rate upwards. Job one for the
    CDC should be taking random samples across America.

    Someone blew the best opportunity one could imagine. The cruise
    liner Diamond Princess was next best thing to controlled environment
    possible. Out of 3,000+ passengers and crew only 6 elderly people
    died. A two percent mortality rate would have resulted in 60
    deaths. This puts the actual mortality rate at just under .25%.

    The Chi-coms screwed the pooch by not even attempting to track
    patients, spread and mortality rates as well as the Rnaught number
    which measures the number of transmissions per infected person.

    We screwed the pooch by not putting a medical team on the ship
    to track the numbers while the ship was still in China before
    making a bee-line back to America. Unless we can get the data
    on indiiduals who recovered on their own, the published mortality
    rates are vastly inflated.
